Visual Studio 2008 hanging when opening designer view

I found myself needing to make some ‘quick’ form changes to an existing windows application. It ended up not being that quick due to Visual Studio hanging every time I opened the designer of a windows form.
After a few unsuccessful searches and trying and failing I came across this blog that did the trick.

Speed up the Visual Studio toolbox

All I needed to do was go to Tools->Options->Windows Forms Designer->General
Set AutoToolboxPopulate to False.
