Don’t forget that closing Windows processes might result in system crashes and similar issues. Only close the apps you are familiar with.
4. Delete cache files
Every software you use on your PC creates cache files to load more quickly. Roblox is not any different, and sometimes cache files can cause issues with performance and crashes.
- Click on the Windows icon and type Run.
- Click on the app Run from the search results, type in %localappdata%, and hit OK.
- Press CTRL + A to select all files in the folder.

Next time you run your software, new cache files will be generated. This process will clear up some memory space, especially if you have been running your OS installation for more than a year.
5. Set Roblox as a High priority
While setting applications as a priority is not considered a fix for most games, for Roblox it might work because your system will consider it more important, thus using less resources on low-priority apps and giving them to Roblox. This method can also improve the overall performance of the game.
- Open Roblox and Task Manager
- Go to the Process Tab and Right Click on Roblox
- Press Go to Details, or just select the Details Tab
- If you used go to details just Right Click on Roblox, if you didn’t look for it in the list
- Scroll over Set Priority and press High

- Scroll through the list and find Roblox
- Click on it and press on Advanced Options
- Scroll down and you will have three options, Repair, Reset, or Uninstall
The choice is yours, but we recommend that you try to repair the game before anything else.
7. Run Roblox as an Administrator
This solution is similar to the one that sets Roblox as a system priority. However, the difference is that running the game as an administrator ensures that the game has full rights to do anything that it needs to do in order to run smoothly.
- Go to the game installation directory.
- Right-click on the .exe file of Roblox and go to Properties.
- Go to the Compatibility tab.
- Check Run this program as an administrator.
- Click on Apply and OK.
- Relaunch the game.
8. Look for any Damaged System Files
For this method, you will need to run the SFC (System File Checker) scan to repair the damaged, missing, and corrupted system files, which might be the reason why Roblox is crashing. To run it, follow the instructions below:
- Press Win + R or Win + S and enter CMD if you used Win+S run the Command Prompt as an administrator.
- Once you opened the CMD enter: SFC /scannow (you can copy paste it).
- You are good to go.
This method will take a while because your system will have to scan everything and replace the problematic files.
9. Flush your DNS
