VS 2010 help needed

Hi Experts,

I'm using VS 2010 Ultimate for some web work and it keeps interupting me when I'm editing an exisitng page on the web.  Every 5 seconds or so it starts downloading files that are linked the page I'm editing.  The caption in the status bar reads : "Getting file "xyz.js from the web... press esc to cancel."  Its annoying as hell because every time I scroll the page it starts this process over again.

How do I disable this?

Thanks!

Are you editing via FTP site? It might be copying the files down locally for you to work on.

Do you have the latest hotfix?

I suspect that you are working on the live site, a very bad way to work.

Work on a copy of the site and post / publish the changes when your work is stable.

PJBX: Thanks it is via FTP and you correct it seems to be doing that.  I'll install the latest updates etc and see if that works.  Is there a particular hotfix that you are refering too?

JamesBurger:  Nobody asked you about your suspicions or what you may think is a very bad way to work.  I didn't say I was editing the front page of a production site, so please go find someone else to lecture today.

HNM,
I'm still using VS2008. Since MSFT did provide a hotfix for VS2008, I was hoping the latest 2010 hotfix, would have the same hotfix.

Also, look at the this link on the caching files: http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/bfx5as36.aspx
