Visual Studio 2005

Much as I love how helpful everything is in Visual Studio 2005 and the way it just makes everything so much clearer and easier, there are just a few times as will all automated software you just want it to shut up.
One case I sometimes feel this is true is the Exception helper. Though not always, its great when debugging code you know is wrong.

"...I'll just put that semicolon in, shall I?"
"Yes, you do that."
