Can't open old files

I am trying to open files that were created in either Max 8 or Max 2010 in Max 2011, 12, 13 and I keep getting an error message;

Memory limits may be exceeded when rendering a Hair with high-poly growth objects. To avoid this, reduce the poly count or use a low-poly growth proxy.

I don't even think that I have hair in this script.

I am using a fairly beefy machine HP Z800 with dual quads and 24 g ram.

This is a large file with many components so I expect that it takes a long time to load, but I have left it open overnight several times.

I have at least 10 iterations of the script and I have tried to load all of them with the same error. Sometimes I click on the OK button and the error goes away an the spinning cursor comes up and eventually the error comes up again.

And I am really kind of a novice, so I don't know much about editing scripts outside of Max.

Any help would be appreciated.
