The next thing to look after is your graphics card driver update before running Diablo 4. It is recommended for any new release to load it up with the latest version to prevent any mid-game crashes. 

To update the graphic drivers, their respective software provides the option to automatically detect the latest version. Now, download and install it should improve the performance and fix the crashing issue for the game. 

Disable security programs 


Any security program or Firewall might identify Diablo 4 as malicious software, preventing it from running. This can explain the concerned problems regarding the game. One way to fix the problem is by disabling the Windows Firewall temporarily.

Head over to Windows Security settings, then under the ‘Firewall and Network Protection’ you will find the option to switch it off. Alternatively, you can choose to ‘Allow an app through Windows Firewall’ option. Click on the Change settings, select Diablo 4 to add it to the exception list and you are good to go.
