Visual Studio cannot open .exe for writing

cannot open .exe for writing

Repro steps:
Run a debug build
Experience a crash (I went with infinite loop into stack overflow)
THEN stop debugging (while it is CTRL+C'd)
Try to build again
IDE will freeze for several seconds
Then after more freezing it'll throw this error. (I removed path and file names)

No I don't run stupid/aggressive antivirus, only the default Windows Defender because it can't be turned off permanently (Windows 10 Developer Preview)
