Tired of it crashing Visual Studio and AV'ing when online access to VS is turned off.


Answer: Tools ---> Extensions and Updates

Search Installed

Find it, and Uninstall.


Tools --> Options --> Extensions and Updates

Uncheck Automatically check for udpates
Load per user extensions when running ....

From time-to-time, go back and check Visual Studio is still offline. There may be other updates turning this back on.

Thanks, Microsoft, for making me move my business to LAMP stack. An hour here or there to keep stroking your "productivity" tools isn't productive at all.
