DDE server windows: explorer.exe - Application error since Windows 10 Anniversary Update

From my research I see this has been an issue for some time on other versions of Windows. This has started on my Lenovo laptop when I shut down using either the Start Menu or right click since I completed the Anniversary Update a few days ago. The error message sits there for a few seconds and then shut down completes. Any suggestions on a solution would be much appreciated. 

I am pleased to say that since the Creator update the problem has gone. I can now leave the autohide on and do not have to have the volume icon showing on the task bar.
