Black Loading Screen

A while back, Some time before the Rengar patch, my LoL would go through champion select and then, upon hitting the screen where it would have the loading champion portraits, Instead it would be a pure black screen with a loading mouse cursor. I've been looking all over and haven't found a solution. I've reinstalled just about everything and repaired, checked my firewalls and everything I could find. Nothing. I've been stuck without League for a while and I'm starting to miss the game. If anybody could find a solution I would be really grateful. (btw. No bug splat or anything, just a black screen.)

EDIT: Nevermind, I found a solution... sort of. When the black screen appears, I just wait for the pop-up sound... like a DING, and I go to task manager, and delete the LoLclient.exe process. Of course, after the game you have to restart LoL.
