If you want to erase anything that’s in the Roblox cache folder, follow these steps carefully:

  • Pick the option that says Run from the drop-down menu.
  • In the box marked “Search,” input “%localappdata%,” and then click the OK button. It will open the Local folder, which is where all of the cache folders for the programs that have been installed are stored.
  • Open the folder titled “Roblox.”
  • Click the Ctrl and A hotkeys simultaneously, and erase the chosen stuff for good by hitting the Shift and erase keys simultaneously.

2. Run an SFC and DISM Scan

You can do an SFC scan by following these steps:

  • Head to the Start Menu.
  • In the search field, type Command Prompt, and then on the right side of the screen, select the Run as administrator button.
  • Select Yes to confirm when User Account Control prompt appears.
  • Type “sfc /scannow” and hit the Enter key.

In the event that the problem continues to exist, you will be required to execute something known as the Deployment Image Servicing and Management command line tool in the following manner:

  1. Start the Command Prompt with administrative privileges.
  2. Type in the following command:
  3. DISM.exe /Online /Cleanup-Image /ScanHealth DISM.exe /Online /Cleanup-Image /RestoreHealth DISM /Online /Cleanup-Image /ScanHealth
