Property Window Freezes

I'm using Visual Studio.NET 2003. I have the "Properties Window" pinned, but this happens even when it's not pinned. If I click around my Form to the different controls, I have no problem, but if I click on the "OleDbConnection1" object, the Properties Window freezes. If I release the pin, and call the window back with either F4 or by clicking on it, I get the window to open and close, but it's all garbled up, like it's not refreshing or something similar (its hard to describe). The Form itself runs well from Debug > Start, so its not a programming error. This happens to any Form that has an OleDbConnection1 object. I have tried to reinstall, and repair and do a full reinstall after uninstalling, but it was all a waste of time. The problem seems to be a bug of some sort in VS.NET 2003, as this does not happen on a version of VB.NET Standard that I have. Any suggestions to fix this problem in VS.NET 2003?
