I've seen this error occur when I have the Visual Studio Tools for Git extension enabled. In my case it happened when I tried to add a new MVC view by going ALT+ENTER in a controller on a return View(); statement where the corresponding view did not exist, and going "Create Razor View 'viewname' with layout". Disabling the plugin and restarting seemed to stop the error from happening.
