Hi all. I've been playing WoW for a while, but lately my PC has been giving me headaches because every time a new patch comes out (this time, 3.2) the updater gets an error about how file [x].adt (always a .adt file) cannot be opened, and no matter what I do the game won't patch up correctly. The first time this happened was a few weeks ago when I tried to do a trial version of the latest expansion. After multiple uninstall/reinstalls, talking to Blizzard tech support multiple times, and various other measures I gave up and took my PC in for service. It did have a virus, but when I got home the same problem was happening. Somehow, after screwing around with the system configuration and starting up in a safe-mode format with no UI that I could not navigate out of, therefore having to just shut down, it started working. I really don't know. All programs like google desktop search and CA software that can interfere are off.

Any thoughts or suggestions?
Don't I take care of them all?

Is it JUST WoW that doesn't work? Are things running slowly for any other programs?

Just in case I get into some BS with FREEDO again about how he's NOT a narcissist.

So... what's there to destroy evil inside of and above the constitutional government?

Hey Rezz. Yea, it's just WoW. Everything else is fine. It always messes up on the .adt files, usually in exactly the same place. Any ideas?

No, not particularly any ideas. I know very little about computers. I haven't even heard of an .adt file before.
