Visual Studio 2013 freezes while loading solution

Visual Studio sometimes says loading project in Solution Explorer and freezes and you have to do a task kill.  Why is this.  Is this because I am loading solutions that where built in earlier versions of VS.

You seem to be having many different problems with Visual Studio 2013, which points to a faulty installation.

Did you install a beta version before installing the final version? You should never do that. Beta versions should be installed on a test computer or in a virtual machine that you won't use for the release version. Installers and uninstallers for beta versions are also in beta, and do not always work correctly.

I suggest that you follow the rules at http://support.microsoft.com/kb/2710678. If you installed other beta versions of Visual Studio on the same computer in the past, you should also search the Internet for instruction on how to uninstall them.

Then reinstall your Visual Studio 2013 version.
