    I am using Webroot SecureAnywhere version 9.0.31.86
    Have installed software MSFS2020 Map Enhancement which only functions when WR shutdown protection is activated.

    With WR active program advises: Error: Stop server failed, error: Error: EBUSY: resource busy or locked open. C:\Windows\System32\drivers\etc\hosts
    My host file is basic default. Software developer advises: If it is hosts related issue, please check with your antivirus

    I have allowed MSFS2020 Map Enhancement.exe within Active processes of WR.
    Windows Defender Firewall also permits MSFS2020 Map Enhancement through my Public Networks system.

    I am at a loss to further rectify the problem and would appreciate assistance from our tech guru's when time permits

    WSA will protect the Hosts File so uncheck this box under Advance Settings/Shields and save to see if that works.
