Axis display glitch

The small red-green-blue XYZ axes that usually sit in the corner of the assembly area display are stuck in the middle of the window and won't go away (see attached screenshot).  They rotate as I change the viewing angle, but they are much too large and will not move.  This problem persists with any part or assembly file I open.

 

On a seemingly related note, the small yellow circles that usually bound the ends and corners of work axes and work planes are also greatly enlarged as well as very pixelated (see 2nd screenshot).

 

This became an issue after I tried exporting a .jpg.  The software froze up, and when I restarted it, the axes were messed up.

Some with the vendor we bought from helped me out with this.  Basically some of the display settings changed when the program crashed.  Tools-->Application options-->General tab: the "Annotation scale" should be set to 1, but was changed to a large number outside the permitted scale.  Also, under the Application options-->Sketch tab, the "Constraint and DOF symbol scale" was also set to a large number outside the scale, so I reset it to 1.

Did you  try restarting your PC?

Are all of your graphics drivers the latest and most current?

Thanks, no, but someone helped me resolve the issue (see my reply to my own post above).
