<Program>.vshost.exe keeps running even after shutting down Visual Studio? RRS feed

  • Question

  • I am running Visual Studio 2008 with .NET 3.5 SP1.  I noticed I could not delete some files and after checking my Task Manager I found out I had a vshost.exe running for every .NET program I ran since my last reboot.  Is this a new intentional thing Microsoft is doing now for faster startup times or a BUG! 

    Seems like in the past, the vshost.exe would shut down along with the IDE.

    (Once again, forced to classify a forum question under category/forum.  The category fits but not so much the forum)
