As in: open VS with a tiny solution I created yesterday in VS2017 - three projects, two "just started", one a VS2013 utility project that has worked for years.
Opens fine. Click on .CS file in different assembly and it locks up completely. 27% CPU usage (so that'll be a whole core looping plus some other tasks) ignores minimize, close, any click at all.

Repeatable, fails every time. Quick check in PSPad and the .CS is fine - a dozen lines of code or so, nothing complex.

Quick check and VS is solidly up date.
So, I'll try a repair installation. 6GB download later (fortunately at 5MB/sec) and it's downloaded. Installing. Lets grind to a halt, shall we? Up to 3% now, after only ten minutes ...

Is it always like this? VS used to be relatively reliable (as in you could rely on them not to fix the bugs but at least it didn't fall over). I'm so close to saying "sod it" and going back to VS2013 - it just worked!
