340 is indeed a quite old driver version. But if it worked a few days before we should probably fix the issue regardless since some older NVIDIA cards are struck with older drivers.

It could be that there is a problem with the files themselves, but it could also be elsewhere. Or there may be a bug in how Blender loads them, though we've verified that code many times.

We should probably disable Inherit Scale by default for new bones? It doesn't really solve the bug, but might avoid the problem in most cases. I except that usually you don't even want to inherit scale from parent bones anyway.

Brecht Van Lommel (brecht) added a comment to T57268: Blender Crash -on Launch- / accessing System tab / Cycles Render mode.

The standard graphics drivers include OpenCL and CUDA. Usually uninstalling them through the Windows control panel works, but not always and that case it can be useful to use the driver uninstaller I linked. Note also that you may need to uninstall multiple drivers from Intel / NVIDIA / AMD, since any of them may be corrupted.
