    Hi EasyIzzy88 , thanks for the report and welcome to our Forum.

    Please check out my reply here to see if disabling the Intel on-board graphics does the trick. Otherwise if not, kindly make sure that Rhino is fully up to date as well and submit a dedicated feedback report including log files as detailed here if you're already using the very latest version of both Rhino/Enscape.

    Generally whenever you experience any crashes/freezes or similar ideally always submit us a feedback report right, so that our support team can check out all the details including log files and machine information to assist as quickly as possible.

    Thanks a lot in advance.
