If I install Productivity Power Tools, Team Explorer no longer works.  When I go to View --> Team Explorer, I get an error saying "object not set to a reference of an object" and the menu doesn't open.  If I remove Productivity Power tools and reset my settings to default (Tools --> Import Export Settings --> Reset to Default), the error no longer appears and I can use Team explorer.
