A Java bug JDK-8180379, fixed in upcoming version 8u152. (You can install early access Java versions here, at your own risk.)

Maybe a workaround is possible as it seems doable to detect in advance if the bug will occur:

If GodMode is enabled in Windows 10 (v1703), JFileChooser program will crash. 
Note: GodMode is a dedicated folder that lets you see all control panels in one place 

Checked this for JDK 8u121, 8u131, 8u152, and 9 ea and could confirm the report. 

''Steps to reproduce: 
- Ensure that Windows 10 system is running version 1703 
1. Create a new folder on the desktop. 
2. Rename the folder exactly as given below: 
3. Run the attached test case ( with specific JDK version. 
8u121 b13: FAIL 
8u131 b11: FAIL 
8u152 ea b02: FAIL 
9 ea b166: FAIL'' 

And Oracle has also mentioned a workaround:


By default in Windows LAF "useSystemExtensionHiding" is set to true. 
Setting this property to false solves this issue. 

UIManager.put("FileChooser.useSystemExtensionHiding", false);
