Has anyone else run into this insane problem where the launcher splash screen never comes up?
All i get is the grey box and it gets stuck saying "checking for updates" or "updating blizzard update agent"
Blizzard themselves have been completely inept at solving the issue, and from searching on b.net and google I'm not the only one who has run into this.
Unfortunately nobody ever seems to follow up with how exactly they fixed this other than the odd person saying something like "i did X and it works now" with X being one of the random 10 generic blizz responses like "delete folder" or "run windows update"
I've been through everything blizzard suggested at least twice on the off chance one of their canned tech support responses actually helped but no luck.
So has anyone else had this problem and been able to resolve it?
P.S. Can not run the repair tool as it's only in the launcher splash screen that I can not actually get to!
