    I'm pretty sure the problem is not on my side, but I wish to be sure.

    Thing is, after the game accepting my login and password, it won't take me to the characters list, instead it will introduce me to the first screen of the game, the realm selection. Once I chose my realm (Dentarg) it starts loging on the server. Dead end, I'm returned to the realm list screen. It appears that I can't log on this or any other realm.

    After reinstalling audio, video and network board drivers, I reinstalled he game. Still to no avail.

    I performed a tracert, and the results are these:

    I just wish that someone can confirm that the issue is caused by telia.net. If not, and you have a clue of how to go about this, please don't hesitate to reply.

    Does this happen allot?
    I had the same thing for a while but it was right after a server crash.

    I just tried my login.. and got into my server and yours.. so.. maybe it was down time... If you still cant get in.. we can look at your end, or telia.

    I will assume from your traceroute you are a European account attempting to login to a Euro server. This link is a good starting point:


    I say this because Blizzard doesn't like players connecting to realms outside their designated country of origin.

    You see, thing is, I can't login on any server at all, Dentarg, Auchindoun, Maelstrom, etc.

    And no, I'm an european player trying to access an european server with a european account :D You guys are just the best, I don't have an alternative, Blizzard support is pretty much... yet to be proved to exist.

    Ok, so I have new data, it seems that a virus is affecting me. Reason why I believe this? I opened another windows user account and I was able to login perfectly with it. I downloaded HijackThis! and ran it, here is the log file.

    I have some suspicions about that [KernelFaultCheck], and I probably should remove that nwiz.exe thingy...

    OK, If you feel it's a virus.. We may need this moved to security.. (As I have no idea how to check a hijack log :D )
    I would think a virus would affect all users, but maybe not.. Or it's a setting that got changed somehow..

    Also.. Are you running any WoW add-ons? Remember, with the recent updates many of the add-ons may not work right, and could be causing this.

    I don't see anything in your log or the description of your problem to conclude that your problem is being caused by a virus. You need to continue this here and let the Games gurus help you.

    Will do!

    Well, I just created the secondary user, usually I only use one, wonder if that makes a difference or not...

    And yes, I use tons of addons. BUT, I haven't added any or changed any addon before it stopped working. Plus I tried a clean install, meaning no addons, no old cache, etc. Still bummed.

    This is very strange, I've never heard of this problem. There may be a problem with your account, have you ever tampered with the WTF folder in your WoW Folder? I'd doubt this is a server issue.

    I'd try emailing [email protected] -- They can help you.
    Or call 1 (949) 955-1382.

    Good luck!! :)

    Nope, the problem happened in between playing. One day I was playing, the next day I didn't touch it (in fact I didn't even stop by home), and the third day, first thing I do is *try* to login with no avail.

    I have sent a form with a description of the problem Saturday, with no response so far. Also made a topic on the forum about it, which no staff bothered replying so far. As for the phonecall, there isn't Blizzard support in my country, the closest chance I got is Spain, and yet it involves an international call :(

    Thanks for replying though, appreciate it :)

    Is this still true?
    That to me sounds like a file or setting that is on that account isn't right anymore..
    It seems the game is connecting, but something isn't allowing a full log in.

    When you did the clean install, you uninstalled then, deleted all of the folders of WoW?
    It really seems like an addon glitch, or a bad patch..
    Latest of the game is 2.0.5 I think..

    This one has me stumped.. :confused:

    I'm assuming you mean the windows user account, since the game install, addons and etc. I used on the attemp I made on the *new* windows user account were the same I used on the *old* one. If it is a windows account file that's messing up, how could it be? I didn't touch my computer since the last time I played, and the last time everything worked just fine.

    I believe you're right about the patch number, but... if it was an addon glitch, wouldn't it happen again in the new windows user account? I found a rather old topic on WoW forums some time ago that referred to a similar problem, and the solution provided by Blizzard was... a new Windows install.

    I would rather avoid doing this, it's a bit of hassle considering the stupid amount of programs and updates inherent to a fresh windows install... but I will try it if by the end of tomorow there isn't another viable solution.
  13. Super-D-38


    Apr 25, 2002
    ??? I'm puzzled. I don't know how anything would change, but sure seems it has.
    Nothing at all was updated or changed?...

    Yeh, I would hate to see you install windows again. I don't wish that on anyone.
    Hmm... I only run one account on here, so not quite sure how much windows shares between accounts. But... Wonder if you can find different config or login files for WoW? If so, maybe you can copy them over to the original and see if it works again.

    No update, no new programs, no nothing, the computer was turned off the whole time :)

    Anyway, too late to do anything, reinstalling windows works wonders, the system is much lighter and now I can play.

    So, thanks anyway, should I mark this as solved since there isn't a problem anylonger or leave it the way it is since this was a last resort solution?

    I would guess your realmlist file (or something similar) somehow got edited somehow. A call to blizzard would have most likely fixed this without reinstalling everything, but hey its always nice to start the system clean again ;)
