I/O Ports Not Responding To The Ez Builder UI Servo Control

I have an ezb v4 that has been on the shelf for several years. (worked when last used). I was on the shelf too so we are both a little dusty so bare with me.
When I set up an I/O port in ez builder for a servo there is no signal present on the signal pins. I have a scope on them. If i go to the diagnostics page of the ezb's web server and hit the "center all servos" button the pins come to life. I think its something simple but ...?

From bad to worse... I reset the EZB and then put it back in client mode. Then I re-downloaded and reinstalled ez builder. Now when I choose connect, I get a single chime and then the disconnect chimes. The debug window show the following;

Got it! You (Ezang) were right on with your comment about antivirus. I added exceptions to my antivirus and to my firewall but that wasn't good enough.
I completely uninstalled the dumb thing and we have controls!

You are welcome

One last thing:
remember, when ever you re-boot your computer, the fire-wall - anti virus will "reload again" - you will need to shut it off again

be well!
