VS 2005 Documentation load issue

    I have a problem loading the Visual Studio 2005 Documentation for the first time after starting Visual Studio 2005. If I press F1 in the IDE it takes ages (at least 10min) before the documentation is actually loaded. And while it is loading you cannot continue working in VS. After the documentation is loaded, pressing F1 reacts quickly (until you close the documentation again). I’m really getting annoyed with this…

    With my PC at home, this does not happen. Anyone know of a solution for this?

    It sounds like it's trying to rebuild the document index every time, as if a 3rd party documentation sample has tried to insert itself and messed up. I've seen this once with some 3rd party library, but cannot for the life of me remember how I killed it.

    OK, found the solution! Install the May 2006 update of the MSDN Library
