You can also try to alter your Antivirus’s settings. Your antivirus may be stopping the program from initializing. The firewall can block incoming data packets labeling them as Suspicious files and send them to quarantine. Try to add League of Legends and all files associated with the game with the exceptions of your antivirus.

Different antiviruses have different interfaces. You can search for how to add exceptions to your specific antivirus. Follow the steps from the results.
If tweaking your antivirus seems to be too big a task for you, you can also choose to work around it. From the system tray i.e bottom right corner of your screen beside the clock, click on your antivirus’s icon. If you can’t find it, click on the up arrow beside the clock in the system tray.

From the pop-up menu that opens, select the turn off for 1hour option. You can use this period to fix the problems that your antivirus and firewall are preventing you from performing.
