Hi

I have a problem getting the battle.net to work. It wont open, it stays on the loading tab forever. And while it is open it starts an Agent.exe *32 every 30 seconds or so.

There where 48 Agent.exe *32 Processes up at one time. And it just keeps opening them.

I tried renaming the file in C:\ProgramData\Battle.net, Agent folder.
I tried deleting it too.
I tried starting in safe mode.
I tried resetting every setting in my IE.
I tried closing every start-up programs at start-up.
I tried disableing my anti-virus programs aswell.

And now it wont even let me reinstall the battle app.

I've tried all day, and I cant find any solutions.
I've tried loads of other things then what I listed.

Looks like it's just Battle.net that is affected by this. And it kind of looks like there is something blocking agent.exe*32 for starting up properly, so it tries to start another every 30 sec or so.

But I cant for the life in me find out what is blocking it. I've tried everything with my anti-virus program.
Even telling my anti-virus program to block agent.exe*32, it still starts up and multiplyes.


Thanks in advance for any ideas about this!
Its getting pretty frustrating.

Just tested Origin, and Dragon Age 3.

Took awhile for them to open, more than usual.

Dont know if this has something to do with it aswell.

Welcome to TSG! (y)

You done antivirus and malware scans?
Blizzard and battle net are huge targets for nasty programs.

http://www.processlibrary.com/en/directory/files/agent/529522/ says it is mostly for updates, but has a warning.
Why do I have multiple instances of agent.exe?
Multiple copies of a process in your task manager may indicate the presence of a virus or Trojan. Make sure you always use an updated antivirus software and perform a full scan to identify any such cases.
Good idea to do a few scans just to be sure.

Hi and thanks!

Yes I've done loads of virus scans, and malware.
Been using Norton, and I even created a boot USB to scan before windows loads.

I've even tried CCleaner to se if something came up.

Malwarebytes and Spybot were the ones I used to scan for malware.

Alright.

I got this fixed. Finally!

Going to post it here so that others with this problem, gets it fixed too (hopefully).

The thing that does this is a windows related problem. I found out that I was missing some files or something in windows. And that was blocking/preventing agent.exe from starting properly.

So, I downloaded a tool that fixes loads of problems in windows.
This program is free, and I used myself. It takes a lot of time to get it done, but it is worth it.
Just be patient.
And remember to run it in Safe-mode!

Download, and follow the instructions.

This worked for me, so I recommend it to everybody who has this problem.
Battlenet launcher is working perfect now.
And everything else is running smooth.
