    Default [SOLVED] ZD failed start due to recent Windows Defender update messed up hosts file

    Many Windows users have reported that their ZD suddenly stopped working after running a Windows Defender update. A fixed was first posted by capill@orionhealth.com here: http://www.zimbra.com/forums/error-r...tml#post130049

    It's also reported that a later defender update fixed the problem. But just in case you have to manually correct it, here is how:

    1) Use Notepad to open %systemroot%\system32\drivers\etc\hosts (e.g. c:\windows\system32\drivers\etc\hosts)

    2) make sure you have this line; if not, add it and save the file

    Code:
    127.0.0.1       localhost
    3) Control Panel->Administrative Tools->Services->Yahoo! Zimbra Desktop Service->restart (or just reboot your machine if you are not sure how to manually restart a service)
