AppHangB1 problem


Yesterday afternoon I started having this problem, possibly after a non-critical client update. What happened is that the Wow client started freezing, and also jamming my Pc until I reboot it. Googled this, and seemingly people have been having related issues, but I found no solution.

If I use the Launcher, it opens up, and immediately freezes.
If I launch with Wow.exe, I get to log in, choose a character but it then locks up when the loading screen bar is 80-90% complete.

I have disabled all addons, deleted wow.exe and launcher.exe and ran the Repair tool, to no avail.

I did not install or change any other software yesterday either. First Wow worked fine, then it did not any more, and the last time I launched it after the client had frozen for the first time during game play there was a "installing non-critical updates" message.

Here is the error report:

A problem caused this program to stop interacting with Windows.

Ended up uninstalling the game, deleting everything, and reinstalling.

Works fine now, but it must have been something wrong with the game client as I didnt change anything else, and Im using copies of my old addon and Wtf folders.
