I would start under options / memory by increasing the memory cache to at least 120MB, per object 15mb, number of objects 15.

Then go to options / view and uncheck OpenGL. I would start with hardware acceleration enabled, then try disabled if that doesn't work. Do you have adequate RAM on the system?

Also disable OpenCL. I think this makes more trouble then OpenGL and was introduced in 5.0x.

I tried all of the above to no avail., I have had no crashes,. but the lapses are more than irritating, I cant work like this at all
