didnt work for me,switched from mozilla to IE and nothing,thanks anyway and congrats to the ppl who could fix it

so far im closing and opening the patcher for a 1% download at time,lol


Same thing's happening to me...I have to sit here and check it all the time until it finishes since it will start to download, intermittently at that, and then all of a sudden will just stop until I close the launcher and re open it. Does anyone understand why it does this because I also have changed my default browser to IE, I turned off my firewall for the time being, and allowed lol.launcher as an exception in my anti-virus. Even as I write this, my download just stopped and I needed to restart it. PLEASE HELP!!

Actually, the truth behind this slow download is because MICROSOFT auto installed an update to Windows Vista (or 7) that forced Firefox or any non-explorer browser to install their virus without even asking the user. It's under add-ons as Microsoft.Net... , There used to be no way to remove the microsoft made virus; but the press found out about it and whined. Now there should be a way to disable it temporarily. Microsoft won't let you remove it even now.

1. disable firewall/anti virus for a short period of time (worked for me)
2. Uninstall pando media booster
3. Run as admin
