I have both VS2012 and VS2008 installed on my Win7 SP1 32 bit machine.  As soon as I installed VS2012, VS2008 would crash anytime I started entering text in the source editor (VB or C#).  If I key only one character in a new line and then wait for a few seconds, InteliSnese seems to get its wits about itself and does not crash VS2008.  However, if a start a new line and forget to wait after the first character, then boom.  This behavior does not happen when editing in VS2012 nor does it happen when editing in VS2008 when VS2012 is also running with an open project.

Thanks for the update. We recommend re-installing VS2008 now that VS2012 is uninstalled. There are too many open variables that makes it difficult for us to pinpoint the problem with the crash in such a scenario.

If the problem resurfaces, please reactivate or create a new Connect bug with the relevant steps.

Update - - - I have now uninstalled VS2012 in an attempt to become productive with VS2008 (that's the version I use for production coding). I was hoping to get back to where I was before this problem started. However, the crashing problem remains.
