Visual Studio freezes when switching to Design mode in Website projects

My computer BSOD'd while installing something last week and then i started getting VS2008 errors, where the Design mode would not switch, it would just freeze!

All the Event viewer says is Application Hang with description = "Fault bucket 881396771."

Solution
-Try to reinstall Web Authoring Component. The easiest way to do this is to just do a repair on your VS2008 installation. Just open up Control Panel and do a "Change" on VS, then do a repair.

This fixed my problem.

Here's an official source on all the ways to solve this problem. Follow each step to make sure you have all the bases covered.
