Stop Resource-Hogging Software

Chances are that you have a lot of applications installed on your PC. Some of these applications have been constantly using the resources that possibly trigger Little Nightmares II crashing. We highly suggest closing the applications that you are not using while playing Little Nightmares II.

Some of the most popular apps that eat a lot of resources while in the background are web browsers like Chrome Browser, media players like VLC, and more. You can also check the Task Manager and see if there’s any application eating lots of resources in your background.

Exclude or Temporarily Disable Antivirus

Another reason why Little Nightmares II keeps on crashing on PC is your antivirus. Antivirus companies such as AVG and ESET have usually updated their software to improve security. There’s a chance that Little Nightmares II’s executable file (.exe) is being marked as a virus.

If you download Little Nightmares II from the official site such as Steam, we’re 100% sure that the game files are safe. Your antivirus may be giving you a false positive report. So, you have to exclude the .exe of Little Nightmares II and see if the problem has been solved.
