vSphere 5.1 Client Hangs when loading DC's and stops responding

I was using the 5.1 vSphere client on my PC without any issues. I installed the update manager plug in and then started having problems. We have vCenter set up so that three DC's are linked together.

When I bring up the client and log in like normal only the one DC loads that I logged into and then the client hangs and I can't click on anything, even after waiting over 20 minutes. I have to bring up task manager and kill the process to get it to close. It works fine from a different PC, just hangs on my PC.

I removed the 4.1 and 5.1 clients, reset, reinstalled 5.1 after downloading it from a ESX server, reset, and still hangs and I have to kill the process to close the window.

Anyone have any ideas what is going on or how to fix it so the client works fine? Do I need to do a deeper scrub when removing the client?

Oh, if would appear that your vSphere Client and .NET and C# framework is corrupted on that workstation.

it's not waiting for an Update Manager certificate which is being presented to your PC, and asking a question to trust?

I don't get any other windows popping up or certificate messages. After the reboot I logged on and let it sit for about 30 minutes and it just hung.

Problems using Powershell and Active Directory?

Managing Active Directory does not always have to be complicated.  If you are spending more time trying instead of doing, then it's time to look at something else. For nearly 20 years, AD admins around the world have used one tool for day-to-day AD management: Hyena. Discover why

Can you access via Web Client ?

Does the vSphere Client do this on ALL Windows workstations ? can you try another.

Web client works ok. And it is just from my PC. I logged on to another machine we use and was able to log in with the local client.

Thank you Sir. I removed everything with .net in it and all the vmware software and reinstalled and so far it is working from my machine.
