Your computer uses Mozilla Firefox by default for doing what?

Opening web pages?
Hey, Doomsinger. remember me? I posted here yesterday. Well i tried re-installing WoW and it got me from my launcher cannot connect error to the Internal error. I have tried everything. Turned off firewall, did Internet explorer config stuff, deleted the files, ran as admin, rebooted in safe mode w/ networking, turned my AVG off, but no success. Downloaded the patchfix file, ran repair and that hasnt brought me any luck either.

Any ideas mate? Im running 32-bit. Feel im getting stuck here caus ive read every single possible fix but none brought me any luck. :(

Ya done goof'd.

Delete the file if it's even still there anymore.

Download it again, then go straight to the Launcher.

Stay away from the Repair utility when playing with tfils.
Ok, gonna try it, see if it works.
Oh, Thrower.

Some people have reported that deleting the Updates folder worked for them, but that they had to do it three or four times before things started working out for them.

Nope, sadly it didnt. :(

And about the updates folder, i believe i have deleted the updates for about 20 times if not more. :(

You're extracting it, right? It's a .zip.

I'm also taking it as read that you're sticking it in the main World of Warcraft folder and not leaving it in Downloads.

Yes? :)
Ofc.
Guess i'm stuck then. :(

I really don't see the point of releasing a patch that fixes absolutely nothing and ruin WoW for half of the players.
This'll sound a little unusual, but work with me.

Move the entire World of Warcraft folder somewhere else. Does that do the trick?
Let me give it a try.
Nope, it didn't. :(
Have you tried using BackgroundDownloader.exe for a few minutes?
Indeed, i have, several times now.
Blizzard Updater.exe ?
When i run it, it gives me an error saying ''There is no patch to apply''.
Sorry if I've covered this before; but could you please check if Internet Explorer is set to Work Offline mode?
