I’ve noticed a number of people having issues (crashing and connection issues) with WoWs and Windows 10 (seeming to coincide with the latest update for both – Windows 10 1803 as of the writing of this article and 0.7.5 for WoWs) including having a few of my own problems with both. 

So, here is a quick guide covering some things you can try to fix your issues. Some of these may be obvious, others not so much perhaps but here we go.


1. Do a cold shutdown and restart of your rig. This is really important as it will clear things out of memory. A regular restart will NOT accomplish this. This is particularly hard with Windows 10 as a default setting counters this unless you unplug your power. So here is how to fix that. You’ll need to go to Settings > System > Power and Sleep > Click on Additional Power Settings > Choose What the power buttons do and UNcheck Turn on Fast Startup.

2. Reboot your Router and or modem if you’re having connection issues

3. Update firmware to the above if you can. Most modern routers make this pretty easy but I would still recommend backing up your settings and taking note of your current firmware version just in case you need to revert.

4. Another thing you can try if you are having connection issues is a DNS cache flush (This is what tells your computer that google.com, for instances, goes to IP When this gets corrupt or just full of old data you can get connection issues or longer than usual load times. Do this by running Command Prompt as Administrator (in Windows 10, press your windows key, type in CMD and right click on the result (should be Command Prompt) > Run as Administrator. Next, type in ipconfig /flushdns and hit enter. Type in exit and enter or just close the window once it’s complete.

5. Update your drivers, especially video drivers. Others to check on will include Network drivers, BIOS firmware, and audio Drivers. As a note, many newer motherboards have made BIOS or UEFI firmware upgrades easy. If it does not seem intuitive OR if you don’t feel confident trying this, LEAVE THIS ALONE. A failed BIOS update can make for a very bad day
