Roblox is a pretty popular game among adults and children alike as not only can you play around in the hundreds of modes the game has, but you can also create your own and share them with the community. However, the game isn’t perfect and often runs into the occasional bug or glitch.
In this article, we’re talking about Roblox’s error code 268, what causes it and what you can do to fix the problem.

What causes the error?
The error code is triggered by unexpected changes in the Roblox client running on your PC. Common causes include:
- Spotty internet connection.
- Server outages at Roblox.
- Overly aggressive antivirus.
- Corrupted or damaged game files.
- Use of cheat engines or similar programs that change system files.
How to fix this?
Here are six fixes you can try out.
Remove any cheat engines
If you’re running an external, third-party program that modifies the game files to give you an edge in the game, Roblox will be able to read those changes and throw this error. It’s not recommended at all that you use such programs or cheat in video games in general. If you’ve been using any such programs so far, remove them from your PC and you should be good to go.
Check Roblox’s server status
Another thing you should do is check Roblox’s server status. If there’s a server outage at Roblox’s end, there’s not much you can do other than just wait for them to resolve the situation. You can check Roblox’s server status at their official status page or on third-party sites like DownDetector.
Sometimes the Windows Firewall can get in the way of programs trying to access the internet, which can very well be the case here. Try temporarily disabling your firewall to see if Roblox starts working properly.
Overly aggressive third-party antivirus or antimalware programs can sometimes cause problems. In such cases, try temporarily disabling your antivirus to see if that makes a change.
Delete app data
Clearing out the app’s cache and files will force the program to re-download them and eliminate any corrupt files that may be causing this issue in the process.
Step 1: Open the Run prompt using Windows Key + R, type in %appdata% and hit enter.
Step 2: Delete the Roblox folder in the directory.
Restart the game and the error should be gone.
Try removing Roblox and installing it again to see if that resolves your issue.
Step 1: Press the Windows key + X and click on Apps and Features.
Step 2: Find Roblox in the list and click Uninstall.
Now reinstall the program from the Microsoft Store and check if that resolves the error in Roblox.
Use the UWP app
Last but not least, you can try using the Roblox UWP app. You’ll find it on the Microsoft Store in Windows and you should be able to get better performance out of the app compared to your browser. Not to mention any issues pertaining to corrupt files will also be resolved.
