Bounding box and anchor point visibility issues

Hey, I'm having visibility issues with my guide lines when I use the pen tool/ anchor points and bounding box. They are showing in white but I'm having to work on a white background so really struggling to see them. Is there any way to change this?

They shouldn't look like that.

Have they always looked like that or has it been since an update?

 

Things I would try (in order):

Use View > Preview on CPU

Restart Illustrator

Try a new document

Restart my computer

Reset preferences

Reinstall Illustrator

Thanks for your reply.

 

Having done all of your suggested points, it looks like it's a problem with the most recent version of illustrator.

 

Here it is after I reset all the preferences (slightly improved but still not workable):

Then I tried rolling back to an old version of illustrator, here we are in 25.1:

Hoping this isn't planned obsolescence for those of us using older machines 😞 (currently running 27" iMac 2012)
