Whenever I open up the user preferences tab, it always makes blender glitch, and I have to re-open blender. This might be because I have an old computer (windows vista) or it might be something else that I am not aware of. Is there any way to fix this?
This usually happens on lower end machines. One fix is to open the preferences view in an already open window (such as the 3d view or timeline) instead of creating one via the File menu.
