Visual Studio 2005 file open and save slove down

Medium Priority
Last Modified: 2013-11-27
Hi, I got a strange slove down problem with VS 2005. Even a file on local or network share is took nearly 30 sn to open, also saving to a network share takes long time. There is no problem with network, because I could easylly open and save files with other editors. VS2005 start to do that last day, nothing I chage or sense. What could be the problem?
Watch Question

Have you installed SP1? If not then try that first.

When VS 2005 first came out, it was full of bugs and problems, even so much that developers and testers were begging for Microsoft not to release it by the scheduled date.
I personally had loads of performance issues at first: long build times, slow toolbox, you name it. At the time I read many posts about these sort of slow-downs and performance issues. Some of them seemed to be solved by hotfixes, none of my issues were.
By the time SP1 came out, I also got a new machine(nothing special, just a P4 Core 2 with 1GB of RAM). I installed VS2005 and SP1 on it and haven't had any issues since then.
