Hey Codecall, sorry if this is in the wrong section, and sorry for the misleading title. I'm actually just having some issues with both my installations of VS. So for a while I used VS2010 for C#, and that was fine and dandy; ran great. But recently I've been checking out Panda3D and for it's C++ feature, you have to use VS2008, because of the way the .DLLs are built. Granted, you can manually rebuild it for 2010, but I'd rather just use the express 2008.

So I went and got the express edition of 2008, installed it for C++, and oh god the errors began. I spent the next hour or so searching the internet for possible fixes for very general errors (I had no optimization pragmas, yet I was getting the 'An internal error has occurred within the compiler'). So after trying something else, VS decided it would be a good idea to ** itself and stop responding. Of course first instincts say to end it through the taskman, and doing so was a terrible mistake.

This somehow broke both of my copies of VS (2010 full and 2008 express). Whenever I go to launch either of them, they sit in the background processes taking about 95%-98% of my CPU, and fail to bring up their respective GUI.

So, what do?
