Uninstall

Drag ProjectManager.mzp file into viewport, check "Uninstall" and press button "Next" for uninstall.
Or manually delete CacheStart.mse from "scripts\startup\" directory and "ProjectManager" folder from "c:\Users\Username\AppData\Local\Autodesk\3dsmax\2011 - 64bit\enu\scripts\TrackScripts\" directory.

Check for use the Material/ Map Browser in the old style.
Or uncheck for use the new.
In the next version I will change the operation of this parameter.
