Are you having trouble with Five Nights at Freddy’s Help Wanted 2 crashing on your PC? Crashes can be really annoying, especially when you’re trying to enjoy your game. But don’t worry, I’m here to help you. In this article, we’ll go through some simple solutions that might fix the crashing issue. Whether you’re a tech expert or new to computers, these steps will be easy to follow.

Solution 1: Restart the PC

When you experience shutdown on Windows 11 or any bug in FNaF VR HW2, it’s recommended to start by restarting the computer before attempting any other fixes.

This is because restarting the computer can resolve any temporary errors caused by outdated cookies and cache or conflicts with other software on your system by simply restarting Windows 11/10/7.

Solution 2: Run the Program as an Administrator (Permanently) PC

When running Five Nights at Freddy’s Help Wanted 2 on PC, there may be times when you need to give the program administrative privileges in order to access certain features or settings and in our case to get rid of crashing.

One way of doing it is by simply right-clicking on the program and selecting “Run as administrator”, but it may not always be enough, as you may need to grant these privileges permanently in order to avoid constantly having to repeat the process.

Here’s how to run a program as an administrator permanently on Windows:

  1. Go to the folder/Application
  2. Right-click on it
  3. A menu will open
  4. Select Properties
  5. A new window will open
  6. Navigate to the “Compatibility Tab
  7. Under the Settings heading
  8. Find “Run this Program as an administrator
    Run this program as an adminstrator on Windows 11
  9. Check the box for this option
  10. Click “Apply

Now your program successfully Runs as an Administrator on Windows 11/10/7 (Permanently) and you can easily open the program without repeating the steps.

Solution 3: Update Five Nights at Freddy’s VR 2

For critical errors like not loading, publishers release updates for an optimized and smooth gaming experience. It’s wise to check for any update released before troubleshooting other possible issues.

Playing with outdated versions can also lead to technical glitches, compatibility issues, or even missing out on new content. Here’s how to keep any game updated using its dedicated launcher:

Open the Game Launcher and from its settings locate “Update” Options. Either enable automatic updates or do a manual update if there are any. Restart the Launcher and check if you are still facing not opening.

Solution 4: Close Intensive/Unwanted Programs Or Settings

Your game/PC can be set to maximum performance, try running the game on lower settings to consume fewer resources. This can include:

  1. A lower resolution(From 4k to 1080p or 1080p to 720p)
  2. A lower frame rate (try playing at 60Hz)

If there are too many programs running in the background, using too much internet/RAM/Disk can cause FNaF HW2 not opening on Windows 11.

Closing unwanted programs will help you eliminate the black screen on startup issue on your PC as your game would be able to get the required resources from Windows 11/10.

  1. Press Ctrl + Shift + ESC keys to open Task Manager
  2. Now check which program is using more Resources, usually indicated by a darker background
  3. Right-click on that program and select End task
    End Task on Windows 11

Now check if the not opening is solved or not.

Solution 5: Try Enabling/Disabling VPN while playing Five Nights at Freddy’s VR Help Wanted 2

Still running into not opening error on Windows 11?

If you’ve got a VPN on, try turning it off to see if it makes a difference. If it’s off, switch it on and check again. But heads up! Don’t jump between too many regions; you don’t want to get blocked.

Remember, the right VPN can be a game-changer.

Solution 6: Add Game Exceptions on Antivirus PC

Sometimes antivirus thinks game files are bad guys and stops them, causing the not loading.

To fix this, tell your antivirus that FNaF HW2 files are cool by adding them to the “exceptions” list. This way, you can play without the antivirus messing things up!

Follow the steps below to add an exception on Antivirus (This guide is for Avast, and would be similar for other antiviruses):

  1. Launch Avast on your PC.
  2. Select Menu at the top-right corner of Avast.
  3. Choose Settings from the menu.
    Settings on Avast antivirus
  4. From the left sidebar, choose General > Exceptions
    Add Exception Button on Avast Antivirus
  5. Click ADD EXCEPTION and then type the URL you want to add to it.
  6. Click ADD EXCEPTION to save the URL and check if you can access the URL
    Add exception on Avast Antivirus

If you are still facing Avast Blocking Websites, continue to the next solution.

Solution 7: Check if Windows or Any Driver is Outdated

Sometimes compatibility issues can be a reason for continuous Five Nights at Freddy’s VR 2 not loading on Windows.

Often, it’s all about the updates. First off, head to your Windows settings and see if there’s an update waiting. While you’re on this updating spree, dive into your device manager and update your Wi-Fi drivers and update graphics drivers making sure they are on the latest versions.

These updates can make a big difference, fixing a lot of errors.
