Saving 3ds Max 2009 files taking ages !!

Last Modified: 2013-12-04
This is not my specialty, so please treat me as a 3 yo.
Recently we encountered problems with saving 3ds max files, it takes a very long time to save a simple file. This happened on all PCs (mostly core i7 and Core 2 quad). Even a freshly installed PC has this problem, too.

At first I thought the files were corrupted, but even with newly designed files have that problems too. For example:
- A stair model 3ds MAX, 224 MB, takes 4 minutes to save.
- A bar model, 260 MB, takes 10 minutes to save.

All of our 3ds MAX guys have no ideas whats going on. What possibly is the cause of this  and how to we fix it ?

Please HEEEELP !!
