CorelDRAW 2018 freezes on some saves and always freezes when trying to close file. What is the cause of this?

I am running CorelDRAW 2018 on a Windows 10, MSI GE72 2QF Apache Pro Laptop. Running 16 GB of RAM with a Intel HD Graphics 5600 and NVIDA GeForce GTX 970M graphics card. I encountered the same problem when I attempted to switch back and use CorelDRAW X8. Sometimes are saving a file the program will lock up, requiring me to end the process. The same lock up occurs almost every time I try to close an individual file. Is something interfering wiith my corel program?

Thanks in advance for the help
