I have read other forums....unistalled then reinstalled...then I deleted the *.psp folder and undid my preferences in Adobe......still not sure what is left to do????? This is Adobe v. 10 photoshop 2017

Are you using a Mac?  if so, try turning off Open CL.  We could not use Select and Mask without doing this.  Here is how to do it:
  1. Photoshop CC menu > Preferences > Performance
  2. Click on the "Advanced Settings..." button in the right section called Graphics Processor Settings
  3. In the dialogue that pops up Uncheck the option that says "Use OpenCL".
  4. Click OK
  5. and then OK one more time.
  6. Give Select and Mask it a try now.
This fixed PS for us.
