As of a week or two ago, I’m not able to leave meetings by the leave button nor by quitting the program. The only way to get out is to End Task from the task manager. This problem remains even after restarting my laptop.

Clicking the Leave button doesn’t pop up the dialogue box to leave I do see a quick flash of it briefly sometimes , and choosing to quit the program from the taskbar doesn’t seem to do much of anything.

Once that has run head to zoom. If this does not assist please let me know, but hopefully a fresh installation should assist. Thank you. I am also facing the same issue. I tried the above steps, the issue still exists. Please let me know if there are any other solutions to this. I am also facing this problem. Even when I press end task in the task manager, Zoom reopens the meeting right after closing. Very frustrating. Just wanted to update It seem that if I’ve screen shared some time since the last time I restarted my computer, it will suddenly come back.

Hard to pinpoint and don’t have a ton of time to test this. Also wanted to add de that I experience that same thing. I have to end task a few different times on a couple different items in task manager to get it to fully close. When I start a meeting, I see this small window on screen – aomhost. I am not able to close that window. Nothing happens when clicking on OK or Cancel. I think the issue might be related to this also.

Either restarting the PC or end task zoom helps resolve the issue for sometime.. I too am encountering this issue on a Windows 10 machine. When it occurs, my attempts to click END or exit the Zoom meeting are ignored by the app.

I’m unable to close the Zoom app in bottom right task bar also. The only way to quit meeting is to force-close the Zoom app within task mgr at which point it will typically re-start itself, often re-launching the same window, picking up where it left off.

This ungraceful closing of the app then typically manifests itself with other lingering Zoom app instability issues audio, video, etc until the machine is restarted. I’m having the same issue. The “aomhost” Window pops up when the meeting starts and then I am unable to leave the meeting at the end.

If I kill the Zoom processes in the Task Manager, it works, but only if I kill them in the right order. If not, the meeting re-opens. Same here. Symptoms exactly as described above, although I have not seen the aomhost window. I uninstalled, re-installed and issue persisted. It is doing it on two Windows 10 boxes. My guess is that the latest Zoom update or a recent Windows patch has a bug that causes this. It got so bad that I literally bought a new tablet just to use for Zoom calls.

Workaround : If you press Alt-Q a few times you will get the Leave Meeting popup, where you can click the button to exit. Sure, pressing Alt-Q a few times works, but it’s beyond absurd that you can’t leave a zoom call on Windows 10 by pressing the LEAVE button if you shared your screen during the call.

Is anyone from Zoom actually reading this and trying to fix it? This has been an issue for many many months. My IT team is also unhelpful. Explaining that if I uninstall, restart, re-install it will happen “less”. As someone who presents to executive leadership, this is an extremely unprofessional thing to have happen. I’ve reported to Zoom multiple times.

Still, the problem continues to exist. Very frustrating and awkward as hell to say “bye” to everyone in a meeting that I own and then fumble to end the meeting while everyone begins to leave on their own I’m having the same issue, started 3 weeks ago, after over a year of working fine. However, it does this even if there is no screen sharing. It does not happen every time, which has made it difficult to troubleshoot, but it happens in most meetings that last more than an hour.

Latest windows 10 and zoom updates. Same issue s. Whenever I got the pop-up with the empty AOMhost error, Zoom completely froze up and disabled my audio. Whenever I shut down Zoom from my task manager, it just re-opened the app.

I did a re-install, which seems to have fixed the AOMhost issues, but now I can’t leave meetings and is back to killing the app in the task manager. Yeah, that allows me to end the meeting. The AOMhost issue is still persistent and the popup only dissapears with a reboot of the machine now.

We are also experiencing this issue. Ending from task manager just re-launches the meeting. The workaround is to press Alt-Q a few times until you get the popup that allows you to leave the meeting. It did not work for me though. Multiple members in our organization experiencing this issue. We have 2 users in our organization having this problem as well I just submitted a ticket for support for it. We have several users in our company experiencing the same issue. Just sent in a ticket as well.

This is so frustrating. Why can’t someone at Zoom help figure this out? I will be cancelling my subscription because of this. Support got back to us regarding the issue with a solution so far its been working. They sent over an exe file called CleanZoom. Restart computer.

Reinstall Zoom. So far so good. Unfortunately, I can’t attach the exe file here- hit them up for it. I had the same issue. I ended up running the CleanZoom. The only downside is that the. The aomhost error is gone though. The screen share wasn’t properly stopped and “lingered” causing all sorts of overlay issues for multiple programs, ZOOM being one of them. After properly stopping the SLACK screen share, all programs returned to their normal operating selves.

Exactly same issue for me too. I had exited a huddle while the screen was being shared and slack got confused. Couldn’t exit slack, had to kill it. Then zoom started behaving normally again. I had a few user reporting the same issues, but I can’t seem to replicate it.

If you’re able to replicate the issue, can you to turn off hardware acceleration in Slack and see if that helps? As I recall, if you close the shared screen window before exiting the huddle, there doesn’t seem to be any problems. Same problem here. Uninstalled and reinstalled the program twice.

So dumb. I’m sure you have resolved this by now but if not, this resolved the issue for me.



Why wont zoom let me start my meeting –


Was this reply helpful? Yes No. Sorry this didn’t help. Thanks, but as the links all show, there’s no feedback from ZOOM and the only one suggestion is a virtual machine, which is just nuts. Creating a new user account on the Windows machine worked for us. When we logged in as the new user, Zoom worked fine. It would seem to me two things are happening. The Zoom programmers have caught the error thrown by windows and wrapped it with their own message, but do not know how to resolve the issue, thus the suggestion in the message to move to a browser.

Since creating a new account resolves the problem for the new account! I have done some registry and AppData searching but have not found anything other than ZoomPhone remains in the registry after an uninstall.

Can anybody move this idea further or discredit it? Choose where you want to search below Search Search the Community. Search the community and support articles Windows Windows 10 Search Community member. This began happening around mid month April, after six months of no issues and I cannot find a solution to it.
