After installing VS17 Update 1, I can no longer open any folder with a Typescript file in it in Windows Explorer (Windows 10).
After I navigate to such a folder, Windows Explorer closes.
I can recreate this by:
1. Go to empty folder. Create test.txt. No Problem.
2. Rename to test.ts. The rename is successful. Then, about 4 seconds later Windows Explorer closes with no error message.
This occurs every time. Have tried rebooting. I have also tried resetting the File Association for .ts files to notepad.exe (it was VS2015). But still getting the same error.

I also had the same issue after the latest windows updates were installed. I started uninstalling recent windows updates until the problem went away. I uninstalled KB3150513 first (this didn't seem to fix the problem), and then I uninstalled KB4013429 and I no longer have the issue with the crash when I right-click on .ts (typescript) files. I haven't done any investigation into that update yet--I just wanted to report that I had the same issue and I think I've narrowed down the problem.
According to a reddit thread I've been following, Microsoft has released a new update that fixes this problem. The fix is in the patch KB4015438 (details: https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/help/4015438/windows-10-update-kb4015438). I actually have multiple environments and on one of them I could not uninstall KB4013429 (the uninstaller failed). On that environment, after I installed KB4015438 through windows update, I didn't have any more issues right-clicking on the ts files.

It appears the folder view is the problem. Change the view for that folder and its sub folders.
The folder does not crash anymore but still crash on right-click on a .ts file..
