We installed both Host and Viewer on a clean Windows 8 machine, and run CureIt! check. There was a "No threat" report.
Can you please update your CureIT virus definitions database (or download CureIT from Dr. Web site) and try to check again.
Anyway, as Dr.Web told us in response to our false positive report, this specific alert is not a virus or malware. It's "potentially dangerous software" (because it grants remote access). So getting this kind of alert from your antivirus software doesn't mean that your computer is infected.
Dr.Web recommended adding the program (be it Remote Utilities or other remote desktop software) to the exceptions list.

Give us the specific program names that you have tried. All of them.

Maybe some kind of scripts that I can execute remotely on Agent PC to unlock screen or maybe some third-party screen locker that can be used without admin rights.
I can't use Host because I don't have admin rights.
Your help is greatly appreciated.
The screensaver is running on a protected screen. You can't access the screensaver other than with SYSTEM rights. That's why you can't do that with the Agent. Unlike the Host, the Agent runs under a local user account, with limited rights.
In general, if you don't have administrative rights on the remote PC and some action (like controlling a screensaver from afar) requires them, we can hardly do anything about it. It's not about Remote Utilities, this is how Windows works.

I tick hidden option and click OK.
Then a window open to me, but on the remote computer while it should open on a local computer.
It does not matter what program I try to open, always is visible on remote PC.
You do everything right. The problem is that not every application supports "Run hidden" mode. For example, you can run Notepad in the hidden mode, and can't run Calculator in the hidden mode.
Post into this sub-forum if you have any issues with antivirus software or a firewall. Before you post please make sure that:
1. You have the latest version of Remote Utilities Viewer and Host installed. The latest version is always available on the download page.
2. You have updated virus definition databases and the antivirus software itself. Sometimes, when the virus definition databases are obsolete, Remote Utilities can still be detected as a potentially dangerous program. The update can resolve the problem.
If nothing of the above helps, then post your issue here. It is highly recommended that you also send a false positive report to the antivirus software manufacturer. In many cases this can make them fix the issue a lot faster.
If you are not sure about whether you have latest virus definitions or simply want to run the check using other antivirus programs, we recommend using VirusTotal.com website.
