Updating jscript intellisense hang
Chances are it is parsing js file links in your webpage, including master page and trying to download these files over the network or encountering an error trying make intellisense of them all. Force quit ~5 times before I finally restarted the computer, all working now :) I think this may come down to some of the plugins I installed, but I'm not sure which ones...My feeling is that the slowness comes from the size of the projects. I have a web application and whenever I load it in VS 2010 RTM, the left hand corner of VS says "updating JScript intellisense" which never completes.Rick Strahl also has a good post about using j Query intellisense here.To learn more about j Query, I recommend watching Stephen Walther's ASP.

You can download VS 2008 SP1 and Visual Web Developer 2008 Express SP1 here.
