I am also facing the same issue since 0.6.15 until today (21/01/18).

Everytime at the first connection, I get this. And I have to reboot my pc.

Quite annoying.

I was hoping 0.7.0 would fix it.

WG please clean your patches, as this issue happen only with Wows.

Thanks in advance.

Try deleting  prefrences. XML  in the main WOWS game folder (move it out of there if your worried, then you can put it back) 

The game will make a new one when it starts again, the only thing is you may have to reset your ingame settings (ie. Resolution, graphics settings etc) 


If you cant see it there, then its being hidden as a system file, so get your windows to show hidden files.....
