Running latest version of LR 5 (just downloaded the trial version .... was using 4.4 until yesterday). When attempting to edit images from a paid photo shoot (!!!), I couldn't crop images in the Develop Module. Pressed the crop tool and the image went to gray. I can flip back and forth between images and eventually get it to show back up again, but not when I want it to do so (like it's supposed to do!!!). VERY frustrating! Does the same thing when I attempt to apply a preset. (first time it happened was with a preset .... I have uninstalled that one, just in case!)

Also, in the Library Module, my images are clear and sharp, but viewing the same image in Develop is blurry. Sort of like Photoshop's Gaussian Blur (set around 7 - 8 pixels). Please help! I used to love LR and now it's driving me crazy! I did go through website solutions ... installed a new graphic driver ... nothing. Restarted LR and computer. Still nothing. Initially, I thought there was in issue with my previous version. Nope. It seems to be the entire group. Suggestions?!?!?!
