    Default 3ds max 2013 only starts as administrator

    Hi everyone,
    I'm getting a strange situation here and hope you can help:
    I have installed 3ds max on a computer here in the office and it is only running either while logged in the built-in admin account or if I run the program as administrator (right-click > run as administrator) be it in a standard account OR an administrator account other than the built-in.
    What happens when I try to launch 3ds max is that a process (3dsmax.exe) is started and hangs with about 11.200k, with no warnings or errors whatsoever.
    Trying to find out what´s happening, I went to the local appdata 3dsmax folder and realized that the program can´t create the startup files: the folder structure is created up to the ENU folder, and then nothing else. If I run it as admin, though, the whole structure is created and the program runs normally. I tried to copy this structure to the analog standard user folder, but nothing happens.
    I also tried to mess with folder ownership and privileges, but everything seems ok, the user has - obviously - full access to the local appdata folder.
    I´m using windows 7 and I have to have UAC on and need to have Max working for a standard user with no admin privileges.
    My basic system specs:
    • Intel i5 2500k
    • Radeon HD7850
    • 60gb Corsair SSD as cache disk on a 500gb standard disk
    • 16gb RAM
    Thank you very much.

    Well, after a long time struggling with the matter, today I accidentaly found out what was causing the problem: Lucid Virtu MVP, a bloatware that came with my mobo.
    Just disabled it and now everything is fine!
