MsSql Manager Error - Unable to cast COM object of type ‘System.__ComObject’ to interface type

Recently, I've been having loads of jip with SqlManager on my PC.  Whenever I try to do certain things, I'll get all sorts of errors.  Whenever I try and do a select all, or an edit on a table I bump into this issue:

Unable to cast COM object of type 'System.__ComObject' to interface type 'Microsoft.VisualStudio.OLE.Interop.IServiceProvider'.             

To fix these issues, open a command prompt, and go to 'C:\windows\system32' and the type:

regsvr32.exe actxprxy.dll
