Warning Missing Host Entry, The Site May Be Inaccessible Error

Hello I have tried the following to correct this problem but nothing works:
1. Turned off antivirus
2. I updated the host file per instructions on an earlier post (but not sure I did it right.)
3. Uninstalled the local application and reinstalled.
4. Disabled the read-only.

I have Local on Windows 8. Can someone help?

Here is my log file: local-by-flywheel.log (230.4 KB)

Thanks for your time in this matter.

{ stdout: '', stderr: '', error: null, exitCode: 101 }

I think you’re on the right track in terms of looking at antivirus as the source of issues. Take a look at this other post in the Forums that outlines some additional troubleshooting things, most notably using something like Window’s “Resource Monitor” to see what is locking that file:
