Photoshop crashes using lasso tool

My MAC is updated to latest Monterey 12.0.1.  I've updated PS to latest update. When I bring in a photo from Lightroom, once I select lasso and use content aware to edit, although the edit goes through, the system immediately crashes right after. I've read through all the previous issues, I've increased the RAM for PS to utilize to 88%, I've unchecked the graphics processor (AMD Radeon Pro 580X), I've increased the cache levels to 4. Nothing helps. I am completely out of business with this. I'd appreciate any help.

Try trashing your Photoshop preferences. Press and hold Option+Command+Shift (Mac OS) immediately after launching Photoshop. You will be prompted to delete the current settings. Better? 

If not, try logging into another account (you may need to make one), still crashing? 
Try starting up in Safe mode (hold down Shift Key when booting), still crashing? 
You might want to try running a free utility like Onyx: still crashing?
