17.11.2 and COM Surrogate has stopped working

Question asked by s_mcduck on Nov 20, 2017

This might be a little bit niche, but with driver 17.11.2, whenever I try to open a picture with Windows Photo Viewer ( I don't know how many people have bothered to hack the registry to restore Photo Viewer in Windows 10) I get a box popping up saying COM surrogate has stopped working. It also gives me random 'app x has stopped working' messages too. I've rolled back to 17.11.1 and it has gone away. Is it just me, or has anyone else had this happen?


Computer in question is an Acer Aspire 5 laptop, a12-9720p with RX 540 discrete graphics. Windows 10 fall creators update.
