Today, I am embarking upon my global search and replace to change 13,000 lines of code.  But I have had a problem with VS 2003 on my Vista machine -- it likes to hang when I use Find in Files or Replace in Files.

Google to the rescue.  I very quickly found that Visual Themes is the problem.  Fortunately, you can just turn Visual Themes off for VS 2003 without having to turn Aero off completely.  Excellent!


I would have NEVER figured that out myself.  I freaking love Google!
