Symantec owns PC anywhere but there is nothing about that error message and in searching for it. I found only that the user profile has become corrupt.

I would remove the program compleatly, registry entries, folders etc. Down load the newest and try again.

Have you using the newest dat files for your virus scanner and have you checked your system for malware?

But what would cause this?

by kcowens In reply to Try this it has worked on ...

We started getting the "awhost.sys has been disabled" error after restoring and repairing a Windows 2003 system - which should have had nothing to do with the PCAnywhere installation. Do you know what causes this to get disabled? I haven't been able to find much.....

Thanks,
