    Settings/ system/ about freezes task bar after update

    My Surface Pro 3 installed numerous updates 3/30/16 and I have a problem viewing about system using taskbar method.
    When I click on about it won't open and causes some icons in taskbar not to function. It only happens when I try to view about computer. All other info work in settings and computer runs fine until I hit "about". I need to restart computer and everything works great until I look at about again only.
    An update KB3140741 was installed with updates and I heard that this is causing some issues. It can't be uninstalled from control panel.
    Any one else having this issue or recommendations?

    If I click file icon on taskbar the About info will pop up. Then I'll exit out and everything is fine. If I don't do that start menu settings is frozen.
    Weird bug. Somehow about is tied into files location to initiate.
    Not a major issue but some update caused this and wonder which one. Which we could decide what updates to install instead of being forced updates upon us that may cause problems with no way to uninstall.
