For me, all I had to do was run Windows Update. I'm on Windows 10, so I could do this by

  • Clicking the "Windows" task bar Button in Windows
  • Clicking "Settings"
  • Clicking "Update and Security"
  • Clicking "Windows Update"

Try one of the following:

1) Run "Epic Launcher" as Administrator


2) Disable "Real-time Virus Protection"


3) Reinstall "Easy AntiCheat"

Usually located at: C:\Program Files\Epic Games\Fortnite\FortniteGame\Binaries\Win64\EasyAntiCheat


Had this problem for 2 weeks.

All the advice is rubbish, Easy Anti Cheat is just screwed up, reset it by:

finding EasyAntiCheat folder - search for "EasyAntiCheat_Setup.exe" then delete/rename "Certificates" subfolder and run "EasyAntiCheat_Setup.exe"
