You can try a repair, or to run the console in safe mode to see if it will still work for you. See http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/gg680337.aspx

Found this info on Google before entering a support request on EE. The main concern that I have is: How does one open review each page to determine what one is causing the crash?

The best approach to that is to disable all but the one you need most, and test it. Then enable another one, and test it. Eventually you can narrow down which causes the lockups and which work, and only disable those that cause lockups. The hope is, of course, that the ones you rely upon will not be the ones that lock up, and that it is non-critical areas that are not working. Of course, the wizards and console and all that are just tools to put all the steps in a nice, easy location for quick access. All of the features found in the wizards or the console are available by performing the steps manually instead, but that takes more effort, and there are more chances to skip a step or create additional work.
