Visual Studio so slow after debug


I recently installed VS 2013 on my new, very fast, laptop. When debugging everything gets to be very slow:
First of all the debugging as such is slow takes for ever for the step tools to be available and then it's very slow to move from row to row.
After I stopped debugging VS is so slow that a restart of it is the only option.

I of course looked in to this to find different solutions:
I've enabled Just my code in Options/Debugging
Debug 1
I've also added a special caching library for and told it only to download specified modules (and that is empty).
Debug 2I've also clicked the Load all symbols button when it's in debug mode.

I've checked the checkbox "Require source files to exactly match..."

Still it's extremely slow.

If someone has some advice to offer I would be most grateful!

This is a release version of VS and not some pre-release (beta) version you happened to have I hope.  (also purchased / downloaded from a reputable source)

I tried to turn of the anti virus without any changes.
This is the version I use:

Hi, can't find it.

Éric MoreauSenior .Net ConsultantCommented:
under options but only if you have an edition higher than pro

if you look at the "task manager" do you see something like MS Error reporting?

Éric, he has the Professional Edition. IntelliTrace is available only in Ultimate.

Peter, do you have the problem with only one project or does it happens all the time? I do have one project that is very slow, but other ones are OK. I never find out why this lone project is so slow.

Do you have add-ins listed under Tools...Add-in Manager? Some of these are not designed properly and can take up a lot of performance.

If it is on all projects, have you tried repairing Visual Studio?

Have you checked the Task Manager while the thing is working, so as to check that you are not using almost all memory or CPU time? Is your hard disk defragmented?
Peter NordbergIT ManagerAuthor Commented:

Jacques Bourgeois (James Burger), it seems like what you said was right about the project. I've tried other projects everything works fine, but with this particular one it goes slow.

The VS thread in Task manager all of a sudden goes to 40% from 2%. One thing I noticed was that this project seems to use the internal web server for VS, but the other projects use IIS Express, but I don't know how to change that.

Peter NordbergIT ManagerAuthor Commented:
I want to add that before debugging this project it only takes 1% CPU, but after first debug, it stays around 40% for this thread and it doesn't go down until I close and restart the project.

Jacques Bourgeois (James Burger)PresidentCommented:
I am not an expert in Web development, but from the little that I have worked with web projects, here is what I would do.

Copy your project folder and subfolders to your local IIS, usually C:\inetpub\wwwroot.

Launch Visual Studio, and go File...Open...Web Site and select your project folder.

Try working from there.
