Firefox silently did not download agent.exe file from http://www.remoteutilities.com/download/

The link to the file was: [censored]

I had to do "Show all downloads" to see this error message.

The error message was:

Blocked: may contain a virus or spyware

I worked around this problem by reading this article:

http://www.ghacks.net/2014/11/19/bypass-firefoxs-blocked-may-contain-a-virus-or-spyware-message/

What i did: in firefox

Type "about:config" in address bar (without the quotes); hit return.
Click the "I'll be careful, I promise!" button.
Type "safe" into the search box (without the quotes).
Double click the item "browser.safebrowsing.malware.enabled" to turn it from true to false.

Then i was able to download the agent.exe program.

Error "Exception EThread in module rutserv.exe at 000d20cc - Handle invalid"

Is it possible to run "Host" and "Agent" simultaneously on the same PC?  I got this error while trying to run agent.exe on a PC already running Host.  Windows 7.

mac viewer?
