I am continually having an issue with SSMS 2012 hanging (not Responding) when I try to open files, sp's, triggers, or sometimes query windows.  I have tried to reinstall, repair, and upgraded to SP1 with no effect.  I have gone through the settings to see if there was something awry.  I am at a loss.  It appears to be happening to one server and potentailly one database. 

The database in question is set to a compatibility level of 90 (2005).  However I restore the backup to another server with no issues in SSMS.  I am able to open and modify files, sp, trigger... in the restored database without an issue.  The issue just started happening a couple months ago after nearly a year of running just fine.  

When it first started I hit some keys that separated the windows and the issue window had a connection window.  When I cancelled the connection login window the tab started responding, but I have been unable to get to the stage again.  It may be that it is trying to connect to the database and is hanging there?

any help or suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks for reporting this issue. Do you see this issue when you detach and re-attach the same database?. Would it be possible for you to share the detached database and log file for us to investigate this issue?
