Git in Visual Studio 2017 is extremely slow

0

I did the basic checks like not having folders on network drives, changing certain git config settings, using a different repo, anti virus scan ect.

So far I know the problem isn't tied to my Windows account. On another device it only takes a few seconds to switch branches, not a minute. We noticed a lot more network traffic on the slow PC.

When I run Visual Studio in safe mode,

devenv.exe /SafeMode

I immediately see the following errors in the Team Explorer:

System.UnauthorizedAccessException: Access is denied. (Exception from HRESULT: 0x80070005 (E_ACCESSDENIED))
   at System.Runtime.InteropServices.Marshal.ThrowExceptionForHRInternal(Int32 errorCode, IntPtr errorInfo)
   at Microsoft.VisualStudio.ErrorHandler.ThrowOnFailure(Int32 hr, Int32[] expectedHRFailure)

   at Microsoft.VisualStudio.TeamFoundation.TeamExplorer.ConnectPage.ConnectPageVS.Initialize(Object sender, PageInitializeEventArgs e)
   at Microsoft.TeamFoundation.Controls.WPF.TeamExplorer.Framework.TeamExplorerPageHost.Initialize(TeamExplorerPageContext context)

As suggested on msdn, the first thing I tried was:

devenv.exe /updateConfiguration

but this did not fix the problem. Then I ran:

devenv.exe /setup

It gives the following error message:

The operation could not be completed. The requested operation requires elevation.

devenv.exe /SafeMode /log D:\temp

The errors I see in the log are:

Error loading UI library for package WebEditorPackage. HrLoadNativeUILibrary failed with 0x800a006f.
Error loading UI library for package Microsoft.VsSDK.ExtensibilityProjectFlavor.ExtensibilityProjectFlavorPackage. HrLoadNativeUILibrary failed with 0x800a006f.
Failed to find CTMENU resource '#1000' in loaded UI library.

I ran Visual Studio as administrator. The problem persists but I don't have any error lines in the log anymore when running as user in safemode afterwards.

I see one error and many warnings on a regular startup:

ERROR Encountered an ArgumentException when trying to look up the key binding information for ({ef254ccf-cee3-43e9-a22c-3ae3ab08e7fe},256) in the scope {5efc7975-14bc-11cf-9b2b-00aa00573819}.

A Visual Studio repair did not fix the problem either. I'm using Visual Studio 15.6.5.


I ran sfc to check Windows system files.

sfc /scannow

Beginning system scan.  This process will take some time.

Beginning verification phase of system scan.
Verification 100% complete.

Windows Resource Protection found corrupt files but was unable to fix some
of them. Details are included in the CBS.Log windir\Logs\CBS\CBS.log. For
example C:\Windows\Logs\CBS\CBS.log. Note that logging is currently not
supported in offline servicing scenarios.

There are many errors like these:

CSI    000010f2 [DIRSD OWNER WARNING] Directory [l:48 ml:49]'\??\C:\Program Files\Windows Identity Foundation' is not owned but specifies SDDL in component c2wtsres, arch amd64, nonSxS, pkt {l:8 b:31bf3856ad364e35}

The Process Monitor logs show switching between Git and VS. The disk operations itself are fast, but after git.exe FileCloses C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Visual Studio\2017\Professional\Common7\IDE\CommonExtensions\Microsoft\TeamFoundation\Team Explorer\Git\mingw32\bin\git.exe it takes almost exactly a second before it closes C:\Windows. And almost a second after a QueryNameInformationFile event from git.exe, it does CloseFile on C:\Windows\System32\conhost.exe.

I made Wireshark captures when there is nothing special going on. I see a lot of traffic between my PC and webdefence.cluster-x.websense.net, the company proxy. The traffic is exceptionally more than what my colleagues have and they don't see errors.

Wireshark log webdefence.cluster-x.websense.net

The problem stays the same when using the wired, wireless or at home with the VPN connection.

I'm suspecting it is a problem with NTFS permissions?


I tried running SFCFix to no avail.

SFCFix Has Crashed


Something has gone horribly wrong and SFCFix has crashed. Would you like SFCFix
to submit a crash report to the developer so that this problem can be fixed?
Type "y" for yes or "n" for no and press enter to continue:

The other tools I tried weren't successful yet either.

delete "Git" folder in this directory and restart VS

C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Visual Studio\2017\Community\Common7\IDE\CommonExtensions\Microsoft\TeamFoundation\Team Explorer

that folder overrides your normal Git executions.

PS: if you are using not "Community" version then modify accordingly. Cheers

It is probably a hardware problem in this Lenovo L460 - e-ID reader i7 SSD.

The system got restaged. SFC found some errors and could fix them. The traffic in Wireshark looks normal but the problem persists. A colleague logging in on the system for the first time has the same problem.

The only other thing I noticed is when the Opera browser starts up, it is impossible to display a new webpage within the first minute. The website keeps loading a long time.
