hello. my name is zamir and i'am a new user for qgis. i want to report a bug that i encountered.
Right now im doing the tutorial for points in polygon analysis by Ujaval Gandhi.

1. i want to create a new layer from a delimited text file, file name signif.txt
2. the encoding is system
3. the layer settings is (checked) use spatial index.
4. when i click OK, this crashed qgis.
5. but when i unchecked the use spatial index, it does not crash qgis.
6. btw, im using windows 7 ultimate 64bit and using qgis 2.8.2 64 bit. im guessing this is problem with my windows because my other classmates did not have any problem. i also tried version 2.8.1 64bit on similar laptop and crash also happened.
7. there are lots of other crashes that i encountered but i figured that this problem is the starting point.

im on training for qgis so if you could please assist me on this it would be a great help. thanks a bunch!

best regards,
