*Reboot your computer to see whether the error message has disappeared or not.

Secondly, you need to download and install all available updates to the computer. We know that drivers are specified pieces that help to transmit information from your hardware to your operating system. In this way, the operating system will depend on those requests to perform the computer and some other PC tasks correctly. Without the drivers, your OS won’t process information properly. However, the outdated ones on the computer will be another cause for the numerous computer problems. When the driver required to play the game was not updated to the latest ones, then you will sooner or later get the gameguard initialize error 230 messages. So, do remember to get help from a driver update program and download & install all available updates for the computer.

If the gameguard initialize error 230 still remains after the above steps, uninstall and reinstall the some incompatible programs or the game. If you are able to boot into the Safe mode, check what you have ever installed on the computer recently. Some incompatible programs or devices installed on the computer will make the computer run abnormally or cause the gameguard initialize error 230 or frequent system32 error message to happen. Directly uninstall those programs from the computer to see whether the problem was solved or not.

However, the gameguard initialize error 230 will happen when there is something wrong with the file on your computer; hence, you can easily register it in order to play the game correctly. To register a specific file into the registry, you can simply perform the steps below:

RegSvr32 filename
Note: where filename is the name of your game.

Then, you will soon receive a message stating that the file is now correctly registered. Try running your game again to see whether it is running properly or not. However, if the error message persists, you can try another workarounds. But in my opinion, if you do not have enough knowledge to perform this task, do not register the file manually by yourself as it may bring in more serious problems to the computer. And it is best that you can download and run a computer optimization tool to do the job for you. It will thoroughly scan your whole computer and help you register all needed files quickly within clicks.
