Disable Any Third-Party Antivirus Tools
If that probable solution works, the next step would be to whitelist (exclude) Discord from your antivirus software. Again, how you do this differs amongst software systems. Search for and open a whitelist (app exclusion list) in the settings sections of your antivirus tool. Select to exclude Discord from antivirus protection. Windows also has a pre-installed antivirus tool, although this has yet to be generally documented to conflict with Discord.
