Roblox automatically starts to install (with user permission) when you try to play online. If a simple reboot does not work to fix your problems, please follow the instructions below to reinstall the Roblox software.

Part 1:

Go to and click the Install Roblox button. You do not have to uninstall the program before reinstalling it. Reinstalling will overwrite the copy of the program on your computer, and replace any deleted or broken files. Make sure ALL other programs are closed when performing the reinstall.

If this doesn't seem to work, then please do the following:

1.Clear your Temporary Internet Files*** (See below for more details on how to do this). This is very important, in case the Roblox.exe installer program did not download correctly.

2.Go to and click the Install Roblox button.

***The easiest way to delete your Temporary Internet Files is to use Internet Explorer and go to Tools>Delete Browsing History>Temporary Internet Files>Delete.

Or, you can go directly to the Temporary Internet Files folder on your hard drive. The location of the depends on the version of Windows and whether or not you are using user profiles.

For Windows 7 and Windows Vista: If you have Windows 7 or Windows Vista then Temporary Internet Files are in these locations (note that they can be on another drive instead of drive C):

C:\Users\\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Windows\Temporary Internet Files\
C:\Users\\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Windows\Temporary Internet Files\Low\

Please note that you will have to change the settings of Windows Explorer to show all kinds of files (including the protected system files) in order to access these folders.

For Windows XP and Windows 2000:
If you have Windows XP or Windows 2000 then Temporary Internet Files are in this location (note that on your PC they can be on other drive instead of drive C):
C:\Documents and Settings\\Local Settings\Temporary Internet Files\

If you have only one user account on Windows XP or Windows 2000 then replace with Administrator to get the path of the Temporary Internet Files folder.

Part 2:

If you're still having problems, check your firewall:

A lot of antivirus or internet security software tries to control which programs can access the internet. Often, these programs err on the side of caution and by default no program is allowed access. The easiest thing to try is just turning your internet firewall software off - but if you would prefer not to do that, follow these steps to safely allow ROBLOX to access the internet:

Please search Builderman's Help for Norton, MSN, and AOL specific help.

A.Find your firewall program's control panel. Often you can find this in the taskbar in the lower right hand corner of your desktop. Otherwise, it is probably in your Windows Control Panel. It's very common to find the control panel in your taskbar. Make sure to check down there.

B.Find the program permissions section.

C.Find ROBLOX and allow it unrestricted access to the internet.

Repeat Part 1 to reinstall Roblox again after you have reconfigured your firewall.
