Hello folks! I hope you are all doing well

So I installed Windows 8.1 Single Version OEM on my Toshiba L850-B750. Everything went great except I get this weird taskbar jumplist popup which I have attached and I searched extensively to find a solution but to no avail. Can anyone tell me what could be causing this? I saw one or two users post about it on the interwebs but no one replied in their threads.

Thanks in advance :D

Edit:
Solution: Thanks archtop for finding the fix! (Post #20, add to his rep)
The culprit seems to be KB3072318. Uninstall that update, reboot and the jump list will be back to normal. Refresh works, but this is much easier.

Thank you! Worked for me too. How did you know it was that update?

The computer was one of a series of brand new HP Elite desktops we were building, the issue popped up yesterday for the first time. So after reading this thread I started un-installing 4 updates that were installed on Thur., one at time with a reboot in between. It was the last one of course.

That's what I figured you must have done ;)

"The culprit seems to be KB3072318" That nailed it. Thank you! I had spent hours trying to figure how to change the background as the jump lists were nigh on useless the way they were.

try uninstall it manually

in CMD
wusa /uninstall /kb:3072318
and restart, problem should be fixed then

This was the trick! Couldn't find the update in my installed updates list and used the manual command prompt uninstall. After restart the issue was fixed, thanks Strideroy!
