Solidworks generating distorted thumbnails / images

I've been experiencing a technical issue with my SW17.

Whenever I save a part or assembly, the thumbnail that is saves to the file will be distorted with the following issues

- Black background

- Strange shadowing

- Part is off center (of image)


The parts display correctly while working on them.


Similarly, today after completing a FEA analysis, the images that SW generated for the report come out with the same problems. I have attached a sample image to show what is going on.


I've completed some exhaustive searches and haven't found this specific issue.

I am using a i5 processor with a Nvidia GTX1080.



Anyone have thoughts on what may be occuring?
