  1. Restart your computer to ensure that a part of the game is not open in the background.
  2. Run the repair tool to repair any damaged game files.
  3. Update or temporarily uninstall any security programs, which may mistakenly identify the Blizzard Battle.net application as a security threat.
  4. Try creating a new administrator account to resolve permissions issues.

  6. Uninstall and reinstall your game.
