    "Pin to start" crashing the settings app


    I wanted to pin windows update to start menu.

    So i tried opening the settings app and then right clicking on "update & security" to select the 'pin to start' option from the context menu. But the settings app freezes for few seconds and then crashes everytime i do this. Also it will not be added to the start menu. The pin to start option works fine for all other files/apps outside the settings app though! The problem seems to be only within the settings application!

    Someone, plz tell me how to fix this..

    :)
