Try googling it, you can find out solutions for most problems "wow not start on XP" something like that.

The launcher uses the Internet Explorer engine to render the news. If something affects that, it may prevent the launcher from starting up. You may want to run a spyware scanner to see if anything odd is running. If you need one, try checking this page - http://us.blizzard.com/support/article.xml?articleId=20569

what av and firewall are u using? and get some anti spyware, i recommend Malwarebytes and ad-aware.

Have you tried the Repair Utility (repair.exe) in the WoW folder? I'm not 100% sure on what exactly it checks (I've only paid attention to the .mpq files :p), but it may be able to identify something, and download a new copy of whatever is messing with the launcher.
I've runned it twice. Nothing.

SORRY FOR DOUBLE POST, BUT SOLVED!

Solvation: If this happen, copy your launcher, and DONT rename it to Launcher. Then start it. YAY!

    I'm sorry to hear that bro
  • Varine Varine:
    Not to distract but is anyone aware of any software to help visually impaired people interact with their PC?
  • Varine Varine:
    Also what's the best way to ship a PC? Should I just wrap the fuck out of it in the case or put the components in static bags and wrapped up individually?
  • Ghan Ghan:
    The GPU is the biggest danger typically.
  • Ghan Ghan:
    Some of the pre-built vendors use expanding foam to fill in the case and secure the GPU. Otherwise it might be best to remove it and ship it separately.
  • Ghan Ghan:
    Similar if the machine has a large tower CPU cooler installed. Those can experience huge forces and destroy the socket during shipment if they are heavy.
  • Varine Varine:
    So mainly just the heavier things that jut out? I'm planning on pulling out the SSD's too and anything that I don't have well secured. I'll probably be good leaving the motherboard and PSU screwed in there though if I bundle it up?
  • Ghan Ghan:
    Yeah, I'd expect those to be fine. It's mainly the heavy stuff that is also long/tall where dropping the case would cause it to exert a ton of force on the mount. The motherboard will be fine screwed into the board unless the case itself is somehow severely damaged.
  • Varine Varine:
    I have the original packaging for it, so I was going to just put it back in there
  • Varine Varine:
    I don't think I have the boxes for the components though and so I don't want to have a bunch of loose shit bouncing around
  • The Helper The Helper:
    damn I just read that lol
  • The Helper The Helper:
    when i read up and saw spray in foam I was like oh shit
  • The Helper The Helper:
    going to do the last controller giveaway in the NUON Dome forum because I just cannot sell them since I got them for free from a deceased NUON Legend. It is my last one from that.
