  • Turns out the problem was: I was using a SharePoint Server 2010 with SP1 (From Microsoft) apparently after installing it, requires installing the cumulative updates for SharePoint and SharePoint Foundation. I had installed every Windows Updates but was missing the cumulative updates from Microsoft's SharePoint homepage. The current one is from December, after installing it run the products and technology link in Program Files under SharePoint to upgrade the sites.
