Locked hosts file?

I have installed v-6.7.0 on both my Debian Lixux platform and my Windows 10 Laptop (for portabilty). the Linux went flaulessly, but the Windows generated an error:
Local ran into a problem when trying to update the host file.
Please ensure that the host file is not locked by anti-virus

It thatwere the case, I would hve thought that Makwarebyte would have caught it.

Pointers towards a solution will be much appreciated.

Thanks in advance.

Hi @stephenmolnar

This is usually because something is blocking Local. This could be antivirus, firewall, or some other security application. Are you able to rule that out?

If you’d like us to troubleshoot further please share a copy of your Local Log. Retrieving Local’s Log File
