Multiple stability problems, VC 2012 crashes when :
- scrolling in the Source explorer
- checking in with TFS (Getting last version works fine)
- closing visual studio
- and quite often just when editing files

See attached dump file
**** tests from 2013/01/07  *****
After uninstalling and reinstalling VS2012, but without the update 1:
- we can compile existing projects, VB or C++
- we can create new C++ projects (library, MFC application, etc. all are OK)
- we cannot create a C#, VB or J# project, as we get this error :
"visual studio does not have permissions to read the template information from the registry"

Solution (after 3 days of test...) :
download Security-Restore from and run it to reset all privileges on the registry.
Hope this may help someone else.
