      When you work with a large Microsoft Visual C++ .NET solution in Microsoft Visual Studio 2005 on a computer that has a single, non-hyperthreaded processor, the Visual Studio 2005 IDE stops responding (hangs). This problem is more likely to occur when you open the solution, browse the solution by using the Class View, or perform any action that rebuilds the IntelliSense database .ncb file.
