I have been experiencing some crashes with VS210.  I'm sorry to say that the add-ins that I have installed are so well integrated into the UI that I'm not quite sure what is add-in and what is VS! 

 

Is it simply a case of checking Tools->Add-In Manager & Tools->Extension Mamager?  (I am assuming that Tools->External Tools cannot uimpact negatively on VS?)

 

Is there an easy way to purge everything back to a vanilla state in VS2010?

try: devenv.exe /ResetSettings

 

I get quite a few crashes at startup, VS will crash when opened a couple of times then work fine for a while, then start crashing again when opened, rinse and repeat.
