Hi, I've been having a repeated problem running any ArcToolbox tools in ArcMap (10.4). The tool will run but then the ArcMap application freezes and I need to shut down the application using Task Manager. I have enough disk space and I'm only using letter and number characters. I also tried uninstalling and reinstalling the application and that did not fix the problem. From what I understand it could be two problems which I cannot diagnose and/or fix:
1) My working directory is not writable. I have tried repeatedly to uncheck the 'read only' box, but it always re-checks itself.
2) I downloaded another application on my computer that interferes somehow with ArcGIS, but I cannot figure out what that is.
Does anyone have any suggestions? I am at a loss for next steps. Any help is much appreciated!
