It might be an incompatible Java TXRX module.

You can try to disconnect and restart the Arduino IDE.
Or you can try the new BETA Arduino IDE. If you download the zip file and unpack it somewhere, you only have to set the folder for your projects files. You can try different versions of Arduino that way.

You could also try to reinstall Java, or install a different Java version.
