Blank Screen when Opening a Document

Whenever I attempt to open a spreadsheet I am presented with just a gray screen. The LibreOffice launcher opens and runs fine, but whenever I try to launch Calc or Writer etc it just freezes up and I have to kill the process. I have uninstalled and reinstalled and reset my user profile and none of those have worked. From poking around the only advice I've seen for fixing this is disabling OpenGL/OpenCL however, these are already disabled.

I am running 5.4.1 on Windows 10 64-bit. Nothing changes when I jump down to 5.3.6.

I have the same problem (in March 2019) most frustrating. I never know whether it will work or not. Sometimes rebooting the laptop works, but not today!
