    Default Mental ray rendering viewport snapshot issue

    Hello guys,
    I have some issues with mental ray on both my instals of Maya 2015 and Maya 2016- on both versions mental ray renders a viewport snapshot. I'd like to reset mental ray to default.
    I tried restarting a new scene it didn't work , then tried reloading the plugin from the plugin manager and it didn't work either.
    It's weird because my mental ray preferences seem to be set to default, yet I still get this viewport snapshot
    Is there a way to properly set mental ray back to default ?
    Or do you have any idea what's going on?
    I'm ripping my hair off my head :'(

    This is what I get in the script editor

    we are not sure to exactly understand your question.

    The screenshot shows the IPR render window. If you tear a region, mental ray will start to render it (and you will see interactive changes to the scene reflected in the rendering).

    (If you want to get a "normal" current frame rendering, you need to hit the left-most button, next to the IPR button.)

    In case that this doesn't answer your question, can you please explain more what the exact problem is?
