This is not your windows problem.Many of the users are facing this problem especially countries like Pakistan ,Africa,north America....Unfortunately Uworld is keep on saying that this is your country's ISP and they cant do anything... Only solution is keep trying open multiple windows press LAUNCH button on all windows ,again press after error..it will take almost 20min...

Try a free VPN like tunnelbear to get around any ISP restrictions

Try closing any background applications. For example any torrent application for instance.
