Do you have any 3rd party firewalls and/or anti-virus programs installed? There are a few that are currently incompatible with the PACE extensions (which are bundled and installed with Max).

The two known programs that cause problems are Panda 2010 and Comodo. Disabling and/or uninstalling these applications will alleviate the problem.

Thx for the reply. :)
Yes I have a Panda 2010.
Thak you Ben that was the problem, I disabled the Panda 2010 and now Max works. :)

Just to add, I think aTube Catcher is another program that’s incompatible. The same error code happened to me after I installed aTube Catcher, and after I removed it, Max worked again.
