I'm just interested to know if others have this issue. I'm using VS2015 in Windows 10 but had same problem with earlier versions.
VS starts updating (I assume that's what it's doing) without warning while I'm working and prevents me working. Initially i think there's a problem and perhaps end up re-booting. The update can go on for hours and at no point does it actually indicate it is running updates. It's really infuriating.
Any advice? My laptop is not the fastest but it's not a slow machine.
Another possibility is this is caused by issues with the continuous background MF COBOL parsing. Is that likely? Can it be turned off?
