Frequent crashes / MaxBulk doesn't start anymore - How to reinstall

There are times a software or its settings files may become corrupted, that usually happens after a system or an application crash. Including directory privileges can be an issue in given situations. If files become corrupted, you may see one or more of these problems:

- Crash on start, MaxBulk simply quits, crashes on start or doesn't even start.
- Crash during software operations. MaxBulk crashes during e-mail deliveries.
- Impossible to save documents. 'Save' and 'Save As' menus don't respond anymore.

In order to resolve the problem, please follow the steps listed below:

New paragraph For Mac OS X:

First of all, check your system for haxies. Haxie is a term in computing for a hack specifically designed for use with the Mac OS X operating system. Haxies typically offer small interface tweaks to the system or existing programs (ex. Default Folder, FinderPop, ...). Haxies make changes to Mac OS X that Apple did not intend, they are frequently the cause of system instability and unexpected quits. If you are experiencing inexplicable glitches with MaxBulk Mailer, disable your haxies as a troubleshooting step. Note that most of them include an exception list you can add MaxBulk Mailer to.

- If your system is Haxie free try step #3 first.
- If it doesn't make any differences, try step #5.
- If it doesn't fix your problem either then perform all steps from #1 to #10
