Disabling Intellisense in VS 2005

So, I've been using Visual Assist for ages. I was introduced to it way back in 2003 and have been a faithful user ever since. But I've always been annoyed that I have to have it and Intellisense running at the same time.

Apparently no longer! It would appear that all you need to do is rename feacp.dll to something else (I renamed it to feacp.Not_dll). Restarting Visual Studio and loading a project was super fast, compared to what I was used to.

You can find feacp.dll in Microsoft Visual Studio 8\VC\vcpackages.
(if you're using VS 2008, it's in Microsoft Visual Studio 9.0\VC\vcpackages)

I don't recommend deleting the DLL, just in case you ever want to roll it back. But that's just me.

Enjoy!
