Hotfix: SQL Server Management Studio and Server Manager crashing

Had an interesting issue with a client on a fresh install today.  SQL Server Management Studio would crash as soon as you tried to open a new query window or open a saved query.  Also if you tried to view the local server in Server Manager it was crash as well. 

After some searching, I came across the following KB which fixed both my issues. This occurred on 2 separate servers that were fresh installs.
