VC++ Compiler question

Why does seem that as of late, anytime I make even a single line code change and hit F5 to start running in debug mode, my entire project has to be rebuild? It goes through and re-compiles every single file in every linked project before running.. It didn't used to do this. Any ideas?

Could it be that one of the files has a timestamp in the future set by another PC which has its clock wrong? Try touching all of the files in the directory and see if it is fixed.
