For those who meet the requirements but still getting the issues mentioned above, below are the fixes that you can try.
Update Your Drivers
Scott Pilgrim vs. The World is released in a good condition. If you meet the minimum requirements of the game, it’s likely that your outdated graphics driver is the main reason why Scott Pilgrim vs. The World is crashing. We highly recommend getting the latest update for your PC. You can visit your hardware manufacturer’s official website to get the latest update for your device.
Manually downloading and installing drivers for your PC is time-consuming. For some, updating drivers may be a little bit complicated. For those who want an easier method, we recommend trying IObit’s Driver Booster to automatically download and fetch the latest and needed driver update for your PC. In our case, we used Driver Booster to update and fix the crashing and performance issues in Scott Pilgrim vs. The World. You can follow the steps below on how to use the software:
- Download Driver Booster.
- Once downloaded, install and run the software.
- Click the Scan button and let Driver Booster scan any outdated drivers on your PC.
- If the software found any outdated driver, click the Update Now button located on the upper left of the window.
- Wait until the Driver Booster finished the driver download and installation process.
Note: Your PC may restart several times depending on the drivers that are being updated. Worry not, as this is a normal process for the Windows operating system.
After the driver update completion, try running Scott Pilgrim vs. The World and see if you still encounter the issues that you have earlier.

Kill Resource-Hogging Applications
Chances are you have lots of applications installed on your PC. Some of these applications have been constantly using the resources that possibly trigger Scott Pilgrim vs. The World crashing. We highly suggest closing the software that you are not using while playing Scott Pilgrim vs. The World.
Some of the most popular software that eats lots of resources while in the background are Media Players, web browsers such as Firefox and Chrome, and more. You can close these applications by closing them using the Task Manager.
Another reason why Scott Pilgrim vs. The World keeps on crashing on PC is your antivirus. Antivirus companies have been usually updating their software to enhance security. There’s a chance that Scott Pilgrim vs. The World’s executable file (.exe) is being marked as a virus. Disable or temporarily disable your antivirus or any security programs on your computer. If you download the Scott Pilgrim vs. The World from the official store, we’re 100% sure that the game files are safe. So, you have to exclude the .exe of Scott Pilgrim vs. The World and see if the problem has been solved.
