so you did 4 clean re-installs, and you are still having max hang when you launch the material editor? ...and it is always the material editor?


i think 3dsmax.ini is the file you are looking for. it is either in the root of your 3dsmax directory, or you need to search the my documents directory for it. if you have done a complete re-install, it could still be a problem because i don't think re-installs overwrite the files in my documents. anyway, do a search for it, and delete it. keep in mind, deleting it will reset all of the customization you have done to your configuration.
