    Program or programs.
    Did this start with a failed uninstall of one particular application. If so reinstall it then uninstall. I would guess that each time you try to use uninstall it keeps trying to complete the previous job and crashes.
    Often the uninstall data gets lost or corrupted so reinstalling recreates that information.
    In the future you may be better off using a third party uninstaller. Windows own version is like many MS utilities, very average.
    Take control of your life. Leave others to control their own.
