Photoshop CC 2014: Various issues (Focus Area Selection)

Since downloading Photoshop 2014 yesterday, I've noticed a variety of issues that make the program almost unable to use.

1) Selection issues. All selection tools *seem* to work normally until I attempt to use the new focus-range selection tool. After doing so, any selection tool I use (lasso, rectangular marquee, etc) result in me getting selections such as these:

They consistently show up as selected rectangles of various sizes, spread out throughout the canvas. Any additional selections made from this point only amplify the errors.

2) Also possibly caused by the same tool, I started to develop other issues like layers disappearing from the canvas, despite being visible in the layer panel and visible glitches/artifacts on the screen when opening separate windows (such as the save window).

(Artifacts and visibility issues after taking a screenshot, pasting into a new window, and cropping)

I'm currently using Windows 7 on an NVIDIA gtx 670. I have all of the latest drivers, and have no problems with the regular CC version of photoshop.

I have also tried re-installing twice, along with disabling the GPU. No luck.

Rather humorously and ironically, I've had to use the previous Photoshop CC just to make these screenshots at all.

If I notice any other issues, I'll be sure to post them here, unless directed otherwise.
