Please follow the steps that we have provided below to help solve the issue:

- Close out of all screens and return back to your desktop.
These next steps are known as "Clean-booting" your computer and will disable all programs and services that start with your computer that are not the basic Microsoft services. During these steps, please pay special attention to the note that will inform you how to reverse these changes if you so choose. You do not need to reverse these changes and no program on your computer is deleted. They simply do not start, when your computer starts; you will need to manually start them.
Follow these instructions from Microsoft on "Clean Boot"
Additionally, before closing the MSConfig tool, you may need to click on the "Startup" tab and disable startup programs.
Please be aware that many anti-virus software packages will not be disabled by the clean boot and may still be active and blocking the game. We advise you to turn off anti-virus software manually after the clean boot in order to make sure that it is not the source of the issue with running the game. You should remember to turn your anti-virus software back on as soon as you have finished troubleshooting.
After clicking Apply and Ok, you will need to restart your computer. When the computer boots, open the ESO Launcher and use the game repair feature.

Venture up another character in Elder Scrolls Online can be dreary and dull, few out of every odd individual is fun of questing and even less players find never-ending swarm crush locks in. You have to bounce straight into the PvP action at Cyrodiil or need to confront troubles of Maelstrom Arena yet you would favor not to encounter all that dull leveling and champion point pulverizing first? Buy ESO account. Senior Scrolls Online gives lots of endgame content that, unfortunately, anticipates that you should have a CP topped record to acknowledge totally. Buy the record and put in a safe spot your money for the primary concern... crowns :D make your own one of a kind involvement in an impelled record!
