Control Panel Crashes Windows 10 after the 1703 Upgrade

After installing the Windows 10 Creators update on my 8460w, I noticed I couldn't open control panel. When I tried, it would freeze up everything and then close, and windows explorer would restart shortly after that. This ended up being the IDT Audio driver I had installed. Once I uninstalled that from add/remove programs, everything is back to normal. I would suggest uninstalling the IDT audio drivers in a pre-flight check step/group for any upgrade task sequences pushed out to avoid this unpleasant surprise!
