I have over 50 clients i work with and it gets frustrating when an end user stops the host or even uninstalls the client. I have work other programs that protect this from happening with an administrator  password.

Hello Lance,

Thank you for your post.

I have over 50 clients i work with and it gets frustrating when an end user stops the host or even uninstalls the client.

Unfortunately, if a user is administrator on their PC, we cannot do anything about this. By definition the Windows administrator account has full rights in the system. We cannot block or otherwise prevent the administrator from uninstalling or modifying Remote Utilities Host.

Don't hesitate to ask me if you have other questions.

There is a partial solution to the problem. First, you can protect Host settings with a password. Second, you can hide Host menu in Host options.

However, the user who is administrator will still be able to uninstall the program, delete/reset the Host registry entry or stop running Host processes.
