Windows 10: Can't browse files from Settings or 3D Builder, application crashes

    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.
