    Hey, just recently downloaded the starcraft 2 starter edition, with the definite intention of eventually buying the game, though not necessarily soon. In any case, it seemed to install fine, but every time I try to run it, the patch loader immediately hikes to 50%, and then closes. I've tried downloading the patch manually and installing it, but the patch file won't even open. I've also tried, going off of blizzard's tech support, to specifically run the program as administrator even though I'm pretty sure that is the default anyway with no change. I also tried turning off my firewall and turning of MSE, neither of which worked. Anybody know whatsup?

    Downloaded it straight from blizzard's website. In any case, I actually did manage to get it working. All I did was restart my computer, and after that it worked fine haha. Not sure what was wrong initially or why it's working now, but in any case thanks anyway :).
