Unreal Editor freeze when debugging

I can build my project without difficulty. When debugging, however, I will occasionally meet an issue where Visual Studio freezes and the computer will not respond to any input - no programs will respond, and I cannot even summon task manager. This seems to happen when loading symbols, and the UE process has already started.

There are only two solutions: either I have my task manager open before the event, and I quickly terminate the UE process, at which point visual studio stops debugging and everything is fine - or I simply have to hard reset my computer by turning off the power.

Given that this happens a good 50% of the time when launching the game, I essentially cannot make meaningful progress.

This only seems to have started happening recently: I am running under Windows 10 x64, using VS2013 Ultimate and UE4.8

Any help would be greatly appreciated
