Need to reset Local/Virtualbox?

I still get a driver or local-host not visible error for Windows 10 Pro.
I am using Local-by-Flywheel 2-3-4 and Virtualbox 5.2.14.
Internet suggestion is the either or both Local and or Virtualbox need to be “reset”
since that is not done by merely deleting and reinstalling and Rebooting.
If there is merit to that theory - what can I do?
P.S. downloading the Windows version in Community causes a ZoneAlarm virus alert.

Can you please provide a screenshot of what you’re seeing?

Also, can you please provide your local-by-flywheel.log file? See How do I retrieve Local's log file? for instructions on how to do so.

Local 2.3.4 was released in favor of 2.3.3 for Windows to resolve this false positive. I have updated the link in the 2.3.3 release thread. Thank you for the heads-up!

OK starting with neither Local-by-Flywheel or Virtualbox installed. And Rebooted.

Installed Local-by-Flywheel 2-3-4, executed it & turned on reporting.

Virtualbox 5.2.14 was installed.

Attached is the screenshot of the Error Message.

Below is the Log file data:
