Visual Studio hangs while coding

I am going nuts.

For some reason Visual Studio has been acting really strange lately.  Whenever I start typing code I start getting these delays.  I'll have typed a whole line before it shows up on the screen.  When I hit save it has a 20 sec pause, when it used to be almost instant.

I've tried everything.  I'm ready to lose it.  

Any ideas?  anyone?

I've rebooted.
I've tried using VPN access instead of FrontPage Ext.
I've tried working with local files.
I've tried starting projects as VB Projects instead of C#
I'm about to uninstall/reinstall the entire thing and start over, but it's such a pain I can't bring myself to do it.  I've just broken down and done all my work in TextPad.

What does work... for a few minutes... it seems... is if I "build" the project.  Still, I avoid .Net and work 90% in asp, so there is normally nothing to build anyway.

Any ideas?

It hapens only with Visual Studio or with everything?
If only with Visual Studio -- simpy try to:
1. try service packs
if does not work:
2. reinstall

Just visual studio.

Since it worked before, I can only assume that the problem isn't the service pack.  There must be something interfering.

I'd prefer not to reinstall it, my little portege doesn't even have a diskdrive, so I've got to go into the office and do it over the network.  

I've been so busy it is just insane.  Since most of my work is in ASP, and I've been doing it for years, I can type it without even thinking about it.  The only irritating thing is having to work over vpn.

I just wish there was some sort of setting or something.  I've heard that some source control programs cause a delay, but I don't even use one.  Maybe it is trying to find one while I work?

If you find anything out I'd LOVE to hear about it....

I have 2 copies of Visual Studio .Net up and running on 2 different machines and BOTH copies are horribly slow..  I have found no reason for it.  I know it can't be requirements, cause my latest machine is a P4 3 GHz w/ 1.5GB DDR ram and dual SATD HD's...  I allmost always see an issue when I try to browse for a file on my harddrive...  

The only thing I do is just have a good ol game of solitaire running and when the IDE hangs I switch to sol and play a game.

Ok, I though I found a solution, but now I'm not sure.

First off, if I save constantly it seems to work better.  By constantly I mean every line of code.  Another thing that seemed to work.... although it may be my imagination... was to delete any <!-- #INCLUDE VIRTUAL='myfile.inc' ---> tags.

I dunno.  

Another possibility is the C# module.  I do almost all my work in asp.  Now my clients are running to .net like a bunch of lemmings.  I've billed out hundreds of hours converting their internal systems (servicing 10-20 people), which already work perfectly, into .Net.  Now I've got a huge bank that wants to do the same thing, except they insist it all be done in C#.  What a pain.

Anyway, I realized that this didn't start happening until I got into the C# work.  Maybe that is part of the problem.  maybe?

I appreciate everyone's help, but none of these ideas worked.  I've just been doing all of my ASP/HTML work in TextPad and doing all C# and VB on another laptop.
