I have a problem when loading a scenes in lightwave. When I load up one of our projects I have to wait about 30 seconds or more before I can do anything with the scene after it has been loaded. Also if I turn on HD instance in the volumetrics panel I get similar results. If I try to do anything a window pops up and says Lightwave is not responding. Then I can cancel the window and wait my thirty seconds or so and then proceed. Similar problem if I try to add a enviroment in the backdrop area. We have other computers in our office and no one else has a problem. On those computer once the project is loaded we can proceed immediatly.
Does anyone have a solutuion? I am using Lightwave 9.6
And yes I have reinstalled multiple times.

Perhaps you didn't clean up config files after using LightWave v9.0 for a long time? It was behaving like that..

have you tried changing your openGL settings to see if that is the problem?

That seems to have done it. I found out I had not redirected it correctly in the properties section of the Startup Icon.
