Windows 10: Programs & Features Crashing to Desktop Solved

    Programs & Features Crashing to Desktop


    (Build 10240) Attempting to uninstalling anything from Programs & Features causes it to crash to desktop without giving me the uninstall utility. Has anyone else run into this? Any solution?

    I get this behaviour by right clicking an item in the list and choosing 'Uninstall' from the context menu. It seems like Explorer restarts.

    The solution, for me, is selecting the item and clicking the Uninstall button at the top of the list.

    I noticed it first after the last security update and after I installed JACK. It first happened when tried to uninstall JACK. I suspect one or other.

    The Uninstall/Change button may not show above the list of programs until a program has been selected/clicked on.

    This problem has now cleared up for me since last two updates: KB3074683 & KB3074678.

    I just saw an article and it was KB3074681 that caused Explorer to crash, when using Uninstall Programs, and KB3074683 fixes it.
