The main problem showed up when I opened a ASP.NET web application. Editing the C# source files was no problem at all, but as soon as I opened an .aspx file the whole program freezed.

As a web developer, having a working version of VWD is too important so I switched back to Windows Vista. Sometimes solving problems can be simple; today I decided to reinstall VWD and guess what? Works like a charm! 🙂
