Ctrl + Scroll Lock

While doing my regular work VS2003 and VS2005 start to behave in an odd manner.

i was trying to Search for some text in the entire solution but for some reason the search was not working. only when i attempt to make a find and replace. It took me a while to figure the weird  the message on the “Find results” window see below.

Find all “Label1”, Subfolders, Find Results 1, “Entire Solution”
No files were found to look in.
Find was stopped in progress.

as you can see it says “Find was stopped in progress.” what does this means i ask myself, so i open google make a search and vooala!! the answer was to press CTRL + ScrollLock  and the problem seems to magically disappears.

I wonder what could cause this and why does CTRL + ScrollLock do in order to solve it.

if you ever had this problem then you already know the answer.
