turn off intellisense in VB?

Intellisense is great, and helped me alot. But sometimes, when I know what I am doing, I just want to type with out having to hit Esc every 2nd character. How do I turn it off?

I am using Visual Basic 2008 Express Edition. When I click Tools-> Options I see a tree on the left with:

Projects and Solutions
Text Editor Basic
 -VB Specific
Windows Forms Designer

VB Specific area has 6 checks which are all on by default. Turning them off does nothing to stop it.

Thanks for the effort. Express version is a no go though.
That doesn't work.  I haven't figured out a way either to kill intellisense in VB in Visual Studio 2008.

I'm having to edit my code in notepad because the damn editor keeps stopping every few seconds trying to intrepet my code AS I'm typing the damn code.
