If you’ve experienced various technical issues after upgrading to the Windows 10 Creators Update, the UXStyle software may be the culprit. This program enables third-party theme customization on Windows computers.

According to recent user reports, this tool sometimes causes a series of severe bugs, including BSODs, random driver crashes, as well as Windows Explorer issues.

How to fix Creators Update issues caused by UXStyle

The good news is that the UXStyle software is compatible with the Creators Update OS as long as you install it after you’ve upgraded your computer. Indeed, users confirm that the issues listed above occur only if you install the latest Windows 10 version whilst this software is installed.

In order to avoid these issues, you need to first uninstall the UXStyle software before you hit the upgrade button. Once the Creators Update has been installed on your computer, you can download and install the UXStyle software again.

Here’s how one user describes this whole situation:

If you are using the UXStyle software that allows you to install custom themes, UNINSTALL IT right now. If your system updates to the latest build of Windows whilst this software is installed, it will effectively brick your installation with random BSODs, random driver crashes and a lack of a working Windows Explorer. This happened to me on 3 computers, all of them I have had to reinstall the OS on.

Please share this around so others don’t fall into the pit that I did.

Have you reinstalled the UXStyle software after upgrading to Windows 10 Creators Update? Did you encounter any other issues or is everything running smoothly on your computer?
