pixellated text photoshop cc

Today I left my computer and then when I returned to it, it had restarted. Then when I opened an existing file in photoshop all of the text on the file was pixellated/blurry.
After checking online I reset my preferences and this solved the issue, but i'm not sure if it was photoshop which caused my computer to restart.

I have attached the compressed file of my preferences here, do let me know if you need any further info

Hi Philippa,

Photoshop should not cause the OS to restart.  Worst case scenario would be a crash, but that's different.

What version of Photoshop are you using?  On which OS?

When you say that the text was pixelated, did it remain so, even after editing?  Have you tried closing PS and restarting it?  Trashing your preferences?

Let me know and we can go from there.
