--- Comment #21 from B. K. <shadowcat8 at excite.com> 2011-11-30 18:21:50 CST ---
The workaround in comment #16 worked for me... eventually.

I was getting a Windows error immediately upon starting the
BackgroundDownloader.exe.  The error was "Invalid Torrent File".  So, as I was
going into the installation of WoW to see if I could find the torrent file it
was complaining of, I got an idea.  

I ran the downloader from the last patch (which was only 12MB), and that let me
access the Preferences to disable the peer-to-peer and enable the "Don't
throttle..."  Then, I re-ran the Launcher and it was able to run and even
loaded the News page fully.

Thanks and I hope this helps.
