Make sure you have Whitelisted KOA Re-Reckoning on your AV Software

For some reason every Anti-virus software are flagging the .exe file as a virus and deleting it. If you are using a third-party Anti-Virus software then chances are the crashes are being caused by it. Anti-Virus softwares today are extremely heavy and false positives are quite common from them.

Try running Kingdoms of Amalur Re-Reckoning once after disabling your Anti-Virus software temporarily.

If you are using Windows Defender instead of a third-party AV software then here is how to add Spellbreak on the exceptions list of Windows Defender:

  • Go to Windows 10 settings
  • Click on Update & Security
  • Select Windows Security from the left sidebar
  • Click on Virus & threat protection
  • Under Virus & threat protection click on Manage settings
  • Under Exclusions click on Add or remove exclusions
  • Click on Add an exclusion
  • Select File
  • Select the .exe or executable file which in this case should be koa.exe
  • Restart your PC
