Adding Web Part to Team Site fails

After an installation of Team Foundation Server you might want to customize the Team Site that has been created for you.  If you add a Web Part to a page you will receive the following error:
"An unexpected error has occurred"
After a bit of searching I found a Microsoft Support Article which described the exact error/scenario we were experiencing.
I contacted Microsoft and obtained the post-Service Pack 2 hotfix package for Microsoft Windows SharePoint Services and installed it and restarted the web server.  We are now able to add Web Parts.
