Clipping plane causing entire computer freezes

I’m having an issue with my file where a clipping plane is causing my entire computer to freeze to the point I have to force-reset it. The mouse cursor even stops moving.

Hi John -

Please provide a simple 3dm file and the output of the Rhino SystemInfo command.

I’m having the same issue.

That’s the point when everything freezes:
