    My games just stopped working

    After downloading windows 10 Runescape game stopped working and also stopped my internet completely after about 20 minutes

    Hi,

    I suggest you to follow the methods below and check if it helps.



    Method 1: Run Internet Connection Troubleshooter.

    Windows 10 has a built-in troubleshooter to check and fix issues with Internet connection. I would suggest you to run this troubleshooter to check if the issue is with your internet.

    Refer these steps:


    • Press Windows key +X, select
      Control panel.

    • Change the view by option on the top right to
      Large icons.

    • Click on troubleshooting
      and click on the view all option on the left panel.

    • Run the Internet Connection troubleshooter.
    As you mentioned that after downloading Windows 10 Run escape stopped working completely, I suggest you to install the game in compatibility mode and check if it helps.

    Method 2: Follow the steps below on how to install the Game in compatibility mode:

    1. Download the Game from the manufacturer’s website and save it on your local disk.

    2. Right click on the setup file of the driver and select “Properties”.

    3. Select “Compatibility” Tab.

    4. Place a check mark next to “Run this program in Compatibility mode” and select operating system from the drop down list.

    5. Let the Game install and then check the functionality.

    Keep us posed on this issue so that we can assist you better.
