Can We turn OFF the background compilation for VB

no we cannot do that . there were many requests for that in VB 2002 coz huge projects were slow , but this was solved in 2003 . the main reason why MS cannot give a switch to turn off this feature is :

The information provided by background compilation drives Intellisense, it enables the WinForms designer (as well as all other designers), it fills the dropdowns at the top of the window, it drives the object browser, it enables go to definition, etc, etc, etc. Essentially, without background compilation, the IDE becomes Notepad.exe with syntax coloring. (Coloring, interestingly enough, does not require background compilation because it's entirely based off the lexical grammar of the language and requires no further knowledge of the code.)
