Is Total_Objects a local, a member variable or a global? Are you using the Locals view, the Auto view or explicit watches when you say the value doesn't update? Or are you hovering it?


Do you ever set Total_Objects to -1, at any place in your code? Do you explicitly set it to something else, like 0? You say this happens with all new variables, do all of them get the value -1?


It seems something is up with your debug project settings..

Edit: Things like this tend to happen when builds fail and you run an old executable or something. Also, if you have an antivirus solution, check if it has any issues with your program.
