Confused problem PhpStorm stops working


i have a little confused problem with phpstorm under windows 7.

Sometime when i type a php or other function, phpstorm stop working and come back after few minutes. I have this problem few times on working day and i 'm not sure, where the problem is.

Into the include-path of the project are nothing or when only some pear-packages. I don't know, what can i do or where i should seek for this problem. Can anybody help me please?

Hi Stefan,

Where your project files are located -- local HDD ... or directly over network ? How big is the file (small, few hundred lines .. or big, over few thousands) ? If you have antivirus, try disabling it.

In any case, here is general approach to help devs solving the issue:
1) IDE FROZEN: Please follow and attach a thread dump of frozen app.
    IDE SLOW: Please follow and provide a CPU dump, for performing slow activity only at least for 30 seconds.
2) Create new ticket on Issue Tracker and attach those documents there.

Hi Andiy,

yes, all files are located on local hdd (when remote i work with subversion/git only). The currently file(s) are not so big and i think a max of 1k to 2k lines on the biggest files (on the most few hundred), parts of the projects yes (complete Wordpress or includes all installed PEAR-Packages).

I know that my windows laptop have some problems with CPU and Graphik and tends to overhead.

Later I'll open a ticket with neccessary dumps.

Thanks for help,
