Package Load Failure RRS feed

    I get the error: 

     

    Package Load Failure 

    Package 'Microsoft.SqlServer.Tools.PublishWizard.VSCommands.MenuCommandsPackage, MenuAndCommands, Version=1.0.0.0, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=31bg3856ad364e35' has failed to load properly ( GUID = {A38CF415-6AD2-45F6-8132-9CC33EBE0629}). 

     

    I get this error after I have opened VS and then open the Server Explorer Window.

     

    I have been using VS2005 Professional since December of 2005 and have never encountered this before.  I have never had a beta version of anything on this PC.  I have been searching the Net but haven't found a solution.  At this point, I haven't tried reloading VS because even if it does fix it, what is the guarantee that I will not encounter it again.  I would rather find and fix the cause.

     

    Does anyone have any ideas? 

     

    Additional:  I have now uninstalled and reinstalled VS2005 and SQL Server 2005 including service packs and am still getting the error.

     

    Additional:

    When I ran devenv.exe, the section of the resulting log referencing the GUID indicated an invalid Package Load Key:
