When I want to debug in VS 2012, F10 is not stepping over a single line but most of the time continues like F5. As I've seen in the internet, this is an old issue, and for VS 2008/2010 there are Hotfixes availiable.
I'm programming mainly C# (ASP.NET with IISExpress).
In order to repro the error, you might want to connect to my developer machine:
RDP:owl.winhost4you.com:9058 (You might need to start mstsc /admin, because there is no license server configured.)

I think I've found the cause, it's because I'm running WS2012 under a VirtualBox VM. (VT-x/AMD-V, Nested Paging, PAE/NX)
I'm also experiencing frequent AccessViolations during debugging, so this seems to be the cause.

Can you tell us what type of project is this? This information will help us route the investigation to the right person as this would be different for a C# application vs. a native C++ application.
