    Microsoft has pushed out two updates to Windows 10; causing crashes...

    The Windows team, it seems, has no time to rest, as Microsoft is still pushing out updates to Windows 10 days before the launch of the OS; the weekend was no exception. A rare occurrence, Microsoft's teams have pushed out two updates over the weekend.

    The first, KB3074681, was pushed out on Saturday and, as is usual with these small updates, not many details were provided about what the update fixes. There have, however, been reports by some users that the update is causing Explorer to crash at times. This usually occurs when a user tries disable an active network adapter or when trying to uninstall applications under the Programs and Features tab in the Control Panel. As the application crashes when trying to uninstall any programs, it makes it nigh impossible to even uninstall the update.
    The second was pushed out just a few hours ago and, like the previous one, does not include much in the name of details. It is identified as a security update but, hopefully, it also addresses the aforementioned crashes.

    It is not even out officially and it has already started.
    Hope MS will re-evaluate its policy regarding forced updates.

    By the way, I wondered why control panels started to open twice, this explains it.
    Probably separating explorer process from desktop and Windows explorer helped.

    I cannot even get to the CP. I have to go through options and then apps to remove a program.
