The initial blur is normal: http://www.photoshopessentials.com/photo-editing/field-blur-cs6/
I'd look into display drivers issues. Could you share some info about your config by posting the contents of help-system info?

No pin presents on an image when I open Blur/Field. The cursor displays a pin but when clicked on the image no pin is visually placed. Blur does occur when a pin is placed but no on image blur ring control presents.
When in Blur Gallery, ensure View > Show > Edit Pins is enabled.
Also, when the image opens in Blur (with Field Blur checked) the Blur slider sets about a third over to the right so the image is pre-blurred. Is this a bug or have I overlooked some setting?
That's normal and just the way it is. Mine is initialised at 15.
Thank you - View/Show/Edit Pins did it. I must have spent at least a half hour trying to get some pin presence and that included referencing the CS6 reference PDF as well as CS6 the missing manual. After I received your reply I looked in Evening and found no View reference specific to Blur there either. Thanks again
Thanks for your reply. Another reply pointed to View/Show/Edit Pins and that did the trick.
