Everything was working fine on Friday, but when I tried to launch Studio 2009 (version SP2) on Saturday morning I received the following error message:

The type initializer for 'System.Management.MTAHelper' threw an exception.

Has anyone else encountered this problem? And more importantly can anyone help me resolve it? The only recent change to my applications etc. (and before yesterday) has been an update to my Kaspersky anti-virus. I have Windows XP SP3 and use Office 2007.

Any assistance would be gratefully received.
