Tried new version of After Effects 2022.  Loaded project I was working on, tried to add a simple expression to opacity of a layer, program hung up.  Eventually got controll back but can't edit the expression OR disable it.  Tried reverting back to v18, and now can't do expressions in that version either; resulted in a crash.  Tried uninstall / reinstall with same result.  Tried reset permissions with same result.  What do I need to delete to get expression use back in After Effects at all?

Noticed there was also an error that crashed the system when I went into preferences 'Scripting & Expressions'.  The  Expressions preview window example wasn't rendereing correctly. I restarted again clearing preferences.  Then closed AE.  Then started AE and purged my cache folders.  Found there was an update for JAVA and installed it.  Restarted AE and now I have controll of Expressions again.  Not sure which of those steps was the fix, but for anyone else who gets stuck maybe it will help.
