      Question Alright so, is it safe to download this game?

      This game has destroyed my grandmother's computer multiple times, from back when I played on her computer still.
      Is it safe?

      Were you downloading from the official website? https://www.wizard101.com/game

      There's no reason this game should cause any damage to someone's computer. It's designed to run on many of the oldest computers and operating systems with the capability to run 3D games. It's more likely that there was some other issue with her computer.

      Yes. It is safe to download this game. As it was mentioned, it might be something on your computer. I have four accounts that I use, with no problem. I recently started a fifth account, and ran into game freezing and unable to login to the game. After a few messages back and forth with Customer Service, they found that my computer and my system are okay to run the game. But I was using too much memory, which caused problems running it. So, I just need to make sure that I close other things (like the 11 Windows tabs that I had opened and my Windows Mail) before I try to play the game.

      It might help if you send an e-mail to [email protected] and ask them to help you. In a brief note, explain the problem to them. Give them the UserName that you use to log in to the game (but not your password), and the name and Level for at least one of your Wizards, so that they can check your account faster.

      Hope that helps.

      Alternatively, stop using Windows ME

      Re: Alright so, is it safe to download this game?

      it'll be one of two things most likely causing grandma's comp to be destroyed

      1 she is running something so far behind the times like an old dell with 512mb ram and windows 95 that it can't keep up and just crashes

      or 2 someone has used the comp to check nasty sites that are filled with spy/malware and picked up some nice virus that will require a full service wipe and reload/reformat of the hard drive

      as far as the game goes it is very easy to have even a basic comp run it fine and it shouldn't be crashing on you unless your computer is not up to the minimum requirements

      Honestly I've never had any issues with this game ever. I played it for years on my old pc, a Windows 8 with many, many problems and it was pretty much fine. I play it now on my MacBook Air, which Wizard101 does not support (although recently KI has made efforts to change that) and the worst that I have experienced is my game crashing in the middle of fighting a final boss.

      Either your grandmother's computer is so ancient that it needs to be replaced as soon as possible, or I really don't know what to tell you.
