    I have lost the count of how many times either PC Settings or Modern titles/apps suffer from this issue where suddenly they do not open anymore in Win 8.1. MS should fix it in Win10 because it's a really annoying and frequent issue. But as as usual, this command does the job, thanks for the millionth time

    I tried the fix and it worked but the solution was not permanent. The first time I clicked on PC Settings right after executing the command line it worked perfectly but now it crashes everytime I go into PC Settings > PC and Devices > Devices. That particular options crashes me to the desktop and I also get this error
