I was trying to install LOL. I got to the screen that allows you to log in, the thing is, the percentage bar goes back to 0%. Many people say that it goes down but keeps downloading whats missing. But it doesn't, it goes all the way down to 13GB when it left at 5GB , I have been trying to download this for three days now and it keeps going on, I do not have any idea how to fix it.

  • Is it anything to do with your internet? Commented Feb 18, 2018 at 19:12
  • i dont know, it goes to scanning the files and then resets, and makes my download speed go down

  • Then it's not that it isn't downloading. It gets errors (likely due to internet issues), and whenever it reconnects it rescans the files.

  • i just checked, it seems that every time it restarts it erases the whole temp patching file so its gonna be an infinite loop

Restart of update download may occur when is error thrown while downloading updates.

Next reason shlould be:

  • LoL client has no rights to the folder
  • LoL client has bug (Not very often to have bug in updater...)
  • LoL client has no rights thru firewall
  • LoL client is being blocked by another programs like antiviruses etc
  • When your PC is low on memory (This should stop updates, but i saw never their code...)
  • LoL client has some connection drops
  • Some kind of problem IO in your cpu (practically insane)
