VC6 hangs *most of the time* while linking and/or creating browse info file...

Hello all,

I've been having this annoying problem for a while now..almost to the point I'm scared of pushing that execute-button in VC6 :)
Still as a very very beginner in programming, only SOMETIMES when I press the compile/building OR execute button, VC6 (under XP Pro) hangs while displaying or "linking...", or "creating browse info file..." or "Relinking while applying changes (etc)..."; the building button at that time remains pushed (even when I didn't press it myself beforehand, this is happening when having pressed either one of the above buttons beforehand), and whenever I'm press the stop build button, there's no reaction, it remains pressed, and the only way out is for me the Ctrl-Alt-Delete solution. I have formatted my pc recently because I had this similiar problem before already while I was programming in C++ (now I'm programming in MFC) in the hope that would solve the problem, but no it's back here to stay again... The annoying thing for me is I really don't know what triggers it because only sometimes it hangs, and sometimes not..rebooting and running only VC6 are no solutions either. Is this a corrupt dll-related problem or so? I have no idea, can anyone please help me out here?

With Thanks!

1) Ensure that your program is clean from viruses. If you have anti-virus installed, turn off real-time files system protection.
2) Ensure that you have enough free disk space
3) Install the latest Visual Studio Service Pack

If this doesn't help, uninstall Visual Studio, install in again and install the latest Service Pack.

Do you use Norton Anti-Virus or a similar program?  If so, then try DISABLING it for the folders where you are building VC++ applications.  

There is very little chance that a virus will end up there (unless you're writing one) and the coincidence of ongoing virus scanning and VC++'s operations seem to cause a conflict.

I also encountered the same problem, after the following two steps thigs started to work fine

1. Turn of the virus scan for your dewbug folder
2. IF you are using dyanmic views, changes your debug folder path  to a local drive.
