Looks like you have a fairly heavily modified UI there - you didn’t copy your settings from a previous version did you? If so, that could be the cause of many of your problems.
I would rename your enu folder then start Max and allow it to recreate all the configuration files and see if that helps. If it doesn’t you can remove the new enu folder and rename the old one back, so you shouldn’t lose anything.
