@Arbaz Arif (AcidRain0) Please! Can you try with Load Factory Settings:


Then try to open User Preferences, & let we know... Thanks

I think, old drivers can be too issue, If this not solves, please updates you GPU drivers too... Have a nice day

Thanks for the report, but this graphics card is below our minimum requirements, and we are no longer fixing bugs in Blender 2.79.

You can try updating to the latest drivers or using an older version, but there is nothing we can fix anymore in Blender for this case.
