Host stops working

Windows 10, Host v6.6
I have five Host users, all 6.6 and Windows 10
On one system, Host fails, repeatedly, I have un-installed and re-installed Host at least six times.
On my last attempt, did a un-install - then edited the Registry and deleted all entries
for Host.
Installed - failed within two days (again)

the problem - the sub-folder "Logs" for Host keeps disappearing - yup gone !!

Any ideas?

Regards,
Frank

Hello Frank,

Thank you for your message.

What antivirus software is installed on that computer?

Hello Frank,

Please, try the following:

1. First add Host installation path to Avast exceptions. This is how to do it https://www.avast.com/faq.php?article=AVKB168

2. Completely uninstall Host.

3. Install it back and see if the problem persists.

Hope that helps.

Sorry for the delayed response... subject computer was not local.
Had another/different problem with Avast, so canned it, installed Bitdefender.
"Host" has been solid for three days.

Thanks

Hello Frank,

Alas, modern antivirus programs may be a bit overzealous :)  

You can add the Host as an exception to Bitdefender just in case. Please, refer this page for more information https://www.remoteutilities.com/support/docs/antivirus-issues/

Thanks!
