I checked XSI's website http://www.softimage.com/support/xsi/default.aspx
but it looks like there's no support for the mod tool..

Or maybe if you guys have come across this you could help me out. :)

I installed and used Mod tool a few weeks ago then I stopped using it for a bit.. so this weekend, I decided to fire it up again. and now when it gets to the splash screen, it just freezes with the Windows hourglass. I uninstalled and reinstalled it and didn't make a difference.
Does XSI mod tool have a safe mode?

I also use Max and Maya and Motionbuilder on this PC any they all load fine.. any ideas?

After I ran AusLogics BoostSpeed on this system XSI started doing that...
Uninstalling and reinstalling did repair it however, working fine now.

XSI makes an attempt to access the net on start-up.
Is it possible your firewall is blocking that?

I don't think so wise, I don't really have a firewall just the hardware one on my router.. The only thing I changed recently were my video drivers, but I think this was before I installed mod tool.
