Thanks for reporting so quickly.

Try creating a new admin account with a password and then right click the LoL shortcut and Run as the account you created.

Let me know the results.

EDIT: Also, I'm on IRC quakenet in #lolbeta if you can hop on and talk to me, I'd appreciate it. My name is RiotJesse.

Awesome, glad to hear it's working.

If you don't mind playing around with the accounts/passwords and seeing what runs and what doesn't I would appreciate any information you find.

ok well it looks like as soon as i updated LoL on my new account, i was able to log into my main one and the game is working fine, so looks like a new account is just needed to patch to the newest version
