Sharepoint Designer Error" The Server could not complete your request"

I had an issue with Sharepoint Designer that when I tried connecting to one of my sites, it gave the following error message:

Unexpected response from the server. The content type of the response is "". The status code is "Ok".

Some people suggest that the fix is to uninstall Windows Update KB2756920, however, in the environment I was working in, updates would automatically be installed and I could not change the settings because I was not an Administrator.

I found the fix on the following website http://blog.libinuko.com/2013/01/14/sharepoint-2010-security-token-exception/ and it suggested to install Service Pack 1.

Before I installed SP1, I installed the "Readiness Tool" which can be downloaded from here: http://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=14668.

Thereafter I installed the Service Pack 1 from here: http://www.microsoft.com/en-gb/download/details.aspx?id=5842. Please note that you must shutdown any anti-virus before applying this SP.
