I performed a windows update earlier this week, and now I am unable to debug
my applications.

I am using Visual Studio .NET 2003
Microsoft Development Environment 2003  Version 7.1.3088
Microsoft .NET Framework 1.1  Version 1.1.4322 SP1

Description Of Problem:
-I have tried several applications that I had no problems debugging before.
When I try to start the debugging, I basically lose keyboard and mouse
control in visual studio itself.  It seams like the application has stalled
and is waiting for some input.
- I get the same result when I try to start a new instance or Step into a
new instance.
- Each application that I have tried all seem to start with only 80K of
memory usage in the task manager.  After several minutes it climbs to 88K of
- If I bring another application into the foreground, I am able to bring my
visual studio application back to the foreground by clicking on the task bar.
It will not come to the foreground by clicking anywhere in the window itslef.
-I cannot end the application that I am trying to debug from the task
manager. I have to terminate my development environment.

Has anyone experienced anything like this ?  Is there a solution ?
