I've inadvertently got Reason to scan my whole C drive looking for plug-ins by accident and now it won't start up without crashing. Is there any way I can't stop Reason from not starting due to my error?

I've been trying to sort out the issue via uninstalling and installing but still there, it's almost like Reason has this "scan the whole C drive for VST" hunger.

you would think there would be a way... reinstalling should have worked imo,,, sounds like your stuck in an endless loop

What OS are you using? If it's Windows try deleting a file called 'Reason Plugin Folders.prf'. In Windows 7 it's located at: C:\Users\--\AppData\Roaming\Propellerhead Software\Reason (Where the -- is your computer name of course). The file will be recreated, you'll have to tell Reason where to scan for the plugins again.
