After some issues with my computer, I did a system restore and everything works fine except LoL game client won't start. The launcher is working, but when I hit play, nothing happens. I tried reinstalling but it didn't work.

Dear Greencronik,

You my, friend, are my idol. Hours. hours I spent searching, reinstalling, doing all these supposed "fixes" I've been finding, and all I successfully did was use up5gs of downloads. This actually works, I couldn't actually believe it until I went and Wukong face-rolled just now.

Im going to sing your name in the shower
im going to name my kids after you (all of them)
im going to pick my lottery tickets based on the numbers your name would be on cellphone

cheers bro !

I hope a red sees this and stickies it up somewhere so people can find this. Worked for me too just now, made it back to the game in time to win. If it weren't for that I probably would have lost and been reported for afking.

Redbarons method as seen above worked really well, however I deleted all the files at once and then patched
