If you are like me and use a different git tool that operates outside Visual Studio or as an extension or your frankly tired of the performance hit that this provider causes. Of course the default solution of setting source control to none did not work for me. As soon as Visual Studio detected a git repository in my solution it will flip it back on.
Well your in luck, after some searching I found a solution on stack overflow. I tested it with update 4, my Visual Studio installation on Parallels went from 30% CPU utilization to nothing when siting idle.
- Make sure Visual Studio is closed
- Open regedit
- Navigate to
- In the details pane it should say GitProvider
- Open Visual Studio
