WoW freezes on second license agreement
I had the strangest urge to play WoW again..after quitting months ago, so i loaded it up... the whole 3 hours of installation, and downloaded patches (all 900+ Mb of them) and loaded up the game, it took longer than i was used to (mind you i haven't played for months) i got to making a new character the first time i loaded it, but ti froze... couldnt get task manager up so i had to turn the comp off at the power, thought it would just be a one off thing so i tried again, this time and the times after it has only made it to the 2nd agreement just after i press agree, but i can get task manager up and quit...i thought it may just be the patches so, i deleted patch.mpq and ran the repair utility, it said the usual and tried to roll back to the previous... it couldnt.... now im stuck... one thing i found strange was, i didn't have to type in the game key, is this because it already had it installed months ago?

I never had to type in a game key. This will suck, but you might have to uninstall/reinstall WoW again.

If I remember correctly the CD Key is linked to your Blizzard account (setup on their website) not the installation of the client software. Otherwise you would only be able to log into you account on PC you installed the software on.

What kind of graphics card do you have, how much RAM, what processor, and does this happen with any other game?

its computer 2 on the list, its the families computer, (1.4gb cheap junk RAM, cheap Celeron and the integrated X200 (256Mb) card) However, I know the computer can play the game, it has before for almost a year no problems, my m8 still plays on a lesser system 448Mb RAM 32mb card. I dont play games much on this computer, but because its the only computer connected to the net I played WoW on it. (i think it was around 10-12 months BC and fully patched)

You got a wierd problem dude. It may be possible to due to all the various patching that the minimum requirements were raised? Idk.

Try backup your WTF, Account and Interface folders. Then remove the folders from the account and interface folders. Also delete the contents in the WTF folder. They are all backed up so it''ll be easy to get all your stuff back again.

This will allow you to try the game with no mods, default UI, default settings, etc.

Make sure all your drivers are up to date (I'm sure you've heard that before)

Last, I know I don't want to say it cause it takes 4 hours to do, but try reinstalling the game.

Yea, ive never seen a problem like this for a game... il give it a go, but the whole WoW folder looks in bad shape now.... i thought a re-install would fix it... but i tried before....but nothing...

if the min requirements were raised, it probably wouldn't let me onto a server... but freeze on the agreement? but the thing is, my computer should be able to take WoW easily, its been made to be low spec computer friendly... even if the specs have raised my computer (as old as it is) should easily be able to handle it

Drivers? geez i don't think they made drivers for the X200 for years i have the final retail drivers for everything.

(oh that reminds me, i thought it might be the minor patches/updates that caused the problem, so i also tried running it on the last major patch using wow.exe rather than the launcher but nothing changed)

that's interesting... there's no account folder and the interface folder has nothing inside, there is also a "wow-patch.mpq" in the World of Warcraft" folder but its 0Kb and the proper patches are placed in "data"... Well im lost...
