Zoom chat freezing and icons disappear


Please can someone help me.


I have recently upgraded to Zoom 5.7.8 64bit, I have been Zoom account admin and run regular Zoom meetings for over 15 months, but the past two weeks, I have had issues with the chat freezing and all the icon buttons disappearing, plus the who Zoom 'task bar' only appearing when I hover over it.  I use the chat and the integrated closed captions as part of my teaching.


is there a known problem?

Can I reinstall an earlier version of the software without these issues?

Its embarrassing when you are teaching and part way through a lesson and these issues have occured in every lesson.


Please can someone help me with a resolution.  Thanks
