I too have been troubled by the same phenomena in SU, since may 2017 shortly after I upgraded to SU2017. Many times Windows performed an automatic update, the SU selection tool became unbearably slow. Running the Intel Driver Update Tool did re-install the graphics driver and all was good. It is a frustration but it works. Now, October 2017, that no longer works. Now I had to revert to previous Intel graphics driver of 2016 (10.18.10.4425, Intel setup package win64_153343.4425) AND revert Windows security update KB4041676. Only then SU works fine again.
While the problem exist, that is before the described reverting of the driver and windows update, I did run the SketchUp System Checkup tool, and it finds no issue what so ever; all tests are green.
I do hope that Trimble does fix this problem! And does not engage in a pointing game telling Intel is at fault, or Intel HD graphics is not to be used, or Windows is at fault.Of course they are at fault, it is not my problem, they say.
