Unable Add/Remove Visual Studio 2008

I came across a problem where I could not change, repair or remove Visual Studio 2008, running on my client machine. “A problem has been encountered while loading the setup components. Canceling setup.”

This is caused by Security Update for Visual Studio 2008 (KB952241), remove this update, restart the computer and try uninstalling it again.

Useful to know!
