Try running through these fixes,

I get a RADS error - Could not to connect to HTTP server / Patcher Kernel Stopped Working
1. Close out your game/patcher, hit ctrl+alt+delete and make sure all instances of LoL.Launcher are gone, then restart the patcher process and let it sit.
2. Go to your Riot Games/RADS/System folder under your default install path, and run the rads_user_kernel.exe file, then try starting your patcher.
3. Try deleting your LoL_Air_Client folder (the default install path for this folder is c:\Riot Games\RADS\Projects) and then repatching.
3. See this article, About changing to a public DNS (http://support.leagueoflegends.com/entries/234188-changing-to-public-dns-servers)
4. Replace <install directory>/RADS/system/rads_user_kernel.exe, with this file (http://l3cdn.riotgames.com/releases/live/system/rads_user_kernel.exe)
5. Try installing, Microsoft Dot NET Framework 4.0 (http://www.microsoft.com/download/en/details.aspx?id=17851) and, Dot NET 3.5 (http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/e...displaylang=en)

I ran the EXE as administrator and it worked.
