Microsoft Management Console has stopped working

I am Running Windows 2008 server and exchange 2010.
I dont know when it happened or what caused it to happen because there has been no changes to the server but when I attempted to access Exchange Management Console I received the following error:

Microsoft Management Console has stopped working

Description:
  Stopped working

Problem signature:
  Problem Event Name:      APPCRASH
  Application Name:      mmc.exe

When I try and run Exchange management shell or Powershell or Powershell ISE I get the the following message which is basically the same error.  The only thing different is the App Name.
 Windows powershell has stopped working

I tried to look in Event Viewer to see if I could get some hints and got the first error MMC stopped working.  

Does anyone have any ideas on how to solve this or what might have caused this problem?

I would suggest:

1) Checking Drivers for all components - If they are the latest and greatest, maybe drop 1 rev back
2) Uninstalling applications and software items in reverse order to installation, testign between each uninstallation and reboot
3) run sfc /scannow from an administrative prompt (Have your win2k8 disk handy)

Did the windows update happen recently?
If you have .net 3.5 sp1 installed with KB2449742, remove it and check if the issue gets resolved.
