Thank you!! On a new user account sage and its maxima worked beautifully. On my main account I found a folder called "Steuerfälle" generated by a governement-software for calculating the taxes in Switzerland... I changed that -> issue gone. Thank you very much, William. I'm looking forward to having a great time with sage.
