- Delete your wtf,interface and cache folder and so i did.
So then i joined a battle for gilneas everything went smooth for about 4 rounds when suddenly the same <thing> happend again. World of warcraft freezed totally and had to restart my computer -.-, so now im waiting for a new ticket respond and just /afking my way thrue random battleground if gilneas appeares -.-.

Also, after deleting your Interface folder, did you reinstall any addons before playing?

You're graphics drivers are somewhat out of date. Please uninstall them, and re-install the newest version:
