Windows 8.1 upgrade from 8; Control Panel Crash

Since upgrading HP Envy M6 from Windows 8 to 8.1, control panel is crashing.  Anyone else have this and solve it?

Any way to get to the mail settings not using the control panel?

Any thoughts on fixing the control panel crash?  Thanks for the shortcut...
It seems you have a control panel applet that is not compatible with 8.1. To find out which, you would need to remove all 3rd party cpl files and if that works, re- add one by one to find the culprit.
