    Cannot access the settings for the lock screen - crashes

    After running the Windows 8.1 update 1 i cannot access the settings view for the lock screen. The problem is that when i click into it the settings app exits immediately. This is how i do:

    1. Click settings in the right panel.
    2. Clicks change PC settings.
    3. Click PC and units.
    4. This crashes......

    I have tried to go into the settings through the bluetooth devices. This Works for all options but the Lock screen setting which also it the one that opens when clicking on PC and units.

    I hope you can help me with this problem. I have attached 2 error logs to the post from this event.
