The problem must be because of internal references.

Try setting property
AutoUpgradeEnabled = true

for the control and it should work. This is a known problem on Windows Vista and above OS.

Have you installed any software recently that changes the looks and appearance? If yes, it should be the trouble. If no, need to check this out more.

Try this:
1. Launch Visual Studio with elevated Administrator privilege (Right click the shortcut >> Click "Run as Administrator").
or
2. Try running devenv /Resetsettings in Command Prompt to eliminate the cause of corrupted settings

More info.
The OpenFileDialog (OFD) control actually crashes when I click the center scrollbar in an attempt to scroll up to see “Desktop”.  It pauses then crashes… never an opportunity to click “Desktop”.

To test, on the main (startup) form I put an OFD control and a button to bring it up.  It works fine.  IF I bring up the control on the main form and THEN proceed to use the control on my other form (2 generations away) the control will work.

If I skip the "messing around" with the control on the main form and just pull the form that pulls up the form that needs to use the control then VB crashes.

Clear as mud?
