it states blocked us.tracker.worldofwarcraft.com its to long to type all the whole msg it would take me at least 1-2 hours to type the whole msg but this is the shortest and fastest way i can type this msg the guys at www.worldofwarcraft.com told me to just turn off avast while i play and turn it back on while i am not playing but i dont want to do that cause avast is the only virus protection i have on my computer at the time

I'm getting the same error. And reporting WOW.exe as a false positive.
It could be that when launching the Launcher.exe Avast doesn't know why WOW.exe is loading also.
Still a problem, you guys gotta fix this right away!

Im getting the same error, turning off the "File System Shield" temporarily fixes the issue, blizzard forums are lit up with this issue.

might affect thousands of people

WOW players are very vulnerable to hacking please fix the issue quickly!
