Um obviously your security system recognizes your games as a threat. so it will not run it unless you allow it in the firewall setting

I dunno if this is the right answer, but when I had SpySweeper, it detected some of my games, like WoW, as mal-ware and blocked them. I tried everything to fix it but in the end, the only thing that worked was uninstalling the software. One of the things (I think) that sets SpySweeper off, is that WoW uses that game launcher and because of the nature of how it works, it can appear to be malicious, when actually it's a GOOD thing. It checks for key loggers and such before letting you into the game so you, hopefully, won't get hacked. (the authenticator is really good for that too. I use the launcher, an extremely sick password, plus the authenticator... if I ever get hacked, I'm kickin Blizzard's ***. *rofl*)

Good luck! =)

Error #134 fatal condition world maps among others happens all the time


Go to the World of Warcraft folder.
Delete the Interface, WDB, and WTF folders.
Restart WoW.
This WILL erase all your settings and addons.

If you prefer not to erase all your settings and addons:
Rename the Interface, WDB, and WTF folders.
Restart WoW.

What this does is resets your game to the original install and will remove any potential corrupted files causing the error messages.

Hope this helps!

World of Warcraft Patch problem


Try these two solutions -

Try to move the World of Warcraft folder back to where it was originally installed and run the patch.

Or try this -
1. go to Macintosh HD => Users => Shared => Blizzard: delete the .plist file inside
2. launch the World of Warcraft game and let the patch go through again, download/patch

Good luck.

Unable to Validate Game Version


Two causes for this error meassge either you are not running the latest version of World of Warcraft, or your game files have been modified.

It is possible that you have a virus or program which is modifying files on your computer. Scan your computer with an updated anti virus program to make sure that your machine is clean. Then make sure you are launching the game using Launcher.exe
If none of the above helps they are a few repairing tools that might fix your game, you might want to check "Fix Wareout".

Good luck.
