AE CC 2017? I'm pretty sure that one of that version's "non-bugs", i.e. there's nothing wrong with the code, but your particular configuration of hardware & OS weren't addressed quite as well as it might have been -- hence a "non-bug". The infuriating thing is they can manifest themselves some time after the application's been running just fine.
I'm in no position to offer diagnostic advice -- thankfully, the Home Office hasn't okayed that version for use yet -- other than suggesting you check for any updates, which may contain non-bug fixes.

Your right. This has to be a bug. I have spent the last 30 minutes trying different combinations to import the file such as messing with the "import kind" and "dimensions". The whole time I have been right clicking on my bin and selecting Import in the drop-down menu. Once I just dragged the illustrator file into the bin it then worked. Problem solved for today...but what happens when I back up the files and need to reconnect? Hopefully, I won't have to cross that bridge.
