C++ Question

Visual Studio 2015 freezes whole PC on build repetendly

Sometimes if i Debug a C++ program in Visual Studio 2015 it freezes my whole PC so i have to restart it. Windows doesn't respond to anything even not to commands like CRL+ALT+DEL. Even other programms i have open dont respond anymore and everything freezes.

When this happens Visual Studio is loading a DLL as seen in the bottom left corner and then everything just freezes and only the Windows loading cursor still spins.

Answer

Fixed it myself: i clicked on Tools->Options->Debugging->Symbols and disabled Microsoft Symbol Servers everything works fine now.
