Please go the Edit option from the Library Module, then go to the Preferences.

Thanks Tanuj worked for me.
Please close Lightroom.
Then right click on the Windows icon on the bottom left, and select Device Manager.
Once in the Device Manager, please go to Display Adapters and disable graphic card.
Please reopen Lightroom and uncheck the option for " Use Graphic Processor "
Once done, please close Lightroom, go back to Device Manager and then enable the Graphic Card.
Please let us know if it works.
So far...so good! Many thanks!!
Hi Tanuj-- just a heads up that Lightroom CC keeps resetting itself to 'check' the graphics processor. As long as I don't log out, the program will work with the fix you mentioned. However, if I log out and then re open the application, it goes right back to freezing, and I have to go through the process of disabling, unchecking, and re-enabling.
Is there a way to make that a bit more permanent?
I have exactly this issue, which has only started happening today. However, the fix given to switch off the GPU doesn't work. Really frustrating when I am trying to develop client photos! I am running Windows 10 with all the latest updates. Running Lightroom CC version 2015.8 with Camera RAW 9.8, both are updated automatically using Creative Cloud.
I can replicate the fault exactly and cause it to freeze as follows:-
I am in the develop mode and decide to delete a photo, by right clicking and choosing "remove photo". I choose permanently delete, which gives me a warning saying that the file is on a device that does not support the recycling bin (it is on my NAS box).
I get asked if I want to permanently delete the file and I choose "Permanently delete the file from disk".
I then have the deleted photo showing in the develop module no matter what I do. I can try to choose another photo from the filmstrip, to no avail, I can go to the Library scroll through files, etc. and they all work, but if I go back to the Develop module the photo I deleted is still on the screen and cannot be removed!the only way to get the Develop module to work again, is to exit LR and open it again!
I have the same problem and it is a pain. Ever since the last update.
I was told that Adobe is aware of the problem and the next update should correct it. They just didn't say how long before this is corrected. I was also told that one can uninstall and reinstall the previous version where the problem did not exist. I just don'e want to run the risk of having to re-import my library.
I am having a similar problem however the app just outright crashes when going into the develop module. This only started happening after the most recent update to windows 10 called the creators update. I do not know what was changed that could be causing this but I am really getting tired of all these updates that always seem to breaking things for me.
I have exactly the same problem - after installing WIN 10 Creators update LR6.10 freezes when entering Develop module. I have Nvidia 1060 3GB graphical card.
It can be solved for me by unchecking "use graphical card" in Lightroom.
Adobe please fix the issue.
... one more comment: it is rather the latest Nvidia drivers that cause the problem (ver. 381.65 from 04/06/2017). I downgraded to version 378.92 (previous version) and now "use graphical card" works fine with Develop in Lightroom.
BTW: it is easy to downgrade the drivers - just get an older version from Drivers | GeForce and install it with "perform clean install" option checked.
