If none of your Windows 10 applications open or crash after launch, this decision may be due to an error of 5973. Incident 5973 errors are quite common and can corrupt the application in many ways. However, applications do not usually start. And there are never 5973 erroneous dialogues that provide possible corrections or additional information about what happened. However, the event viewed lists errors under event ID 5973.
Error 5973 Cortana Crash
Windows 10 is a unique Cortana built into the operating system. As such, it is not really a standard Windows Store app. More than that, there were 5,973 breakdowns for Cortana. Cortana can still work for simple applications, completely moving towards normalcy.
Error requesting email 5973
Some Windows users have also noticed incidental 5973 errors for the Mail app when running under standard user accounts (without admin rights). The Mail app is fine, but crashes quickly. This error may be related to the integration of the Mail app with Cortana. One possible solution might be to open the Mail app in an administrator’s account, but there is no set permission to do so.
