To fix this problem, go to the main homepage.
Try to log in there.
After attempting to log in, it should say you entered invalid CAPTCHA. Re-login and enter the captcha you see on the new page. Then try to log in to the client again after successfully logging in to the site. It worked!

Well I have tried to log in since yesterday and have been reading the forum and now I am repairing my client after deleting the lol_air_client* folder. I have never had this problem before. The antivirus I am using is ESET NOD32 v5.
