Please try resetting the user profile, sometimes solves strange issues. Usually it's enough renaming/deleting the file "user/registrymodifications.xcu", it affect all the options in Menu/Tools/Options, and the files "user/basic/dialog.xlc" and "scrip.xlc" are overwritten, additionally custom colors in "user/config/standard.soc" are lost.

The most likely answer is that you have been hit by the OpenGL bug (both v4.4 & v5 are affected). See my extensive breakdown-with-fixes in the answer to Q64314.
