UPDATE: While I didn't find anything yet on the first issue "Ctrl F5" I did find something on the second issue "ASPNETDB.MDF cannot be opened in Server Explorer"'

First I found this possible solution that you can visit here in it's entirety,

That basically says to do this; To fix the problem, go to Tools → Options... → Database Tools → Data Connections and change the SQL Server Instance Name from whatever it was (probably a SQL Server 2005 instance) to your SQL Server 2008 instance, hit OK and you should be fine!

Which I did and then got a msg saying I neede to enable remote connection to the server over tcp/ip which I did following these instructions;

Now I get this error when trying to open the DB in Server Explorer; Connections to SQL Server files(*.mdf) require SQL Server Express 2005 to function properly. Please verify the installation of the component or download from the URL....

I don't understand, I have Visual Studio 2008 and SQL Server 2008 Developer edition why do I need SQL Server Express 2005?

Please, please help I'm about to cry...
