Strange "Object reference not set to an instance of an object" error in webform

P: n/a
I suddenly received an unexpected error in my project. I have been working
on this project for some time without this issue. Nothing has changed in the
form that caused the exception. A little experimentation shows that I cannot
run ANY .NET web project without getting this error:
----------------------------------------------------------------------------
----

Object reference not set to an instance of an object.
Description: An unhandled exception occurred during the execution of the
current web request. Please review the stack trace for more information
about the error and where it originated in the code.

Exception Details: System.NullReferenceException: Object reference not set
to an instance of an object.

Source Error:

Line 1: <%@ Page Language="vb" AutoEventWireup="false"
Codebehind="Login.aspx.vb" Inherits="DataBayWeb.Login" %>
Line 2: <!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.0 Transitional//EN">
Line 3: <HTML>

Source File: c:\inetpub\wwwroot\DataBayWeb\login.aspx Line: 1

Other developers on my team can run the latest version of the project
without an issue. What has happened?

Very strange indeed. It might sound obscure, but try removing the
space in <%@ Page...

Otherwise, I would be tempted to do the inevitable and reinstall the
framework.
