    File Picker UI Host not working!

    I'd just upgraded to windows 10 yesterday, and I've been having issues with browsing files. Today, I was trying to change my background from settings, and as soon as the file browser opened up, it closed straight away. Settings also stopped working. It was frozen, and I had to close it using ctrl+alt+delete. Pretty much the same thing happened with 3D builder, however the application crashed after the file browser closed. Please help me out, I've done sfc/scannow and tried restarting windows explorer but nothing has even remotely helped. I can still browse files from things such as google chrome and paint.

    I've just managed to find out that the thing that stops working is called File Picker UI Host.
