Started getting this issue last night. It disappeared when I rebooted my computer but i'm afraid I might get it again with no apparent consistent solution from anyone.

I have no idea what caused the issue to start happening. I had been playing LoL earlier in the day. Did not restart the computer. Went to play another game for a few hours. Made no system changes. Then tried to play LoL and the problem started happening.

I wasn't running any additional programs I don't usually run. I was running Skype since I always play with my friends with Skype running and had no problems prior to this.

This is on Windows 7 64 Home Premium.

The fact no Red or Orange has post here yet means they probably have no freaking clue either. My bet is that one of the 4 programs required for LoL to even run is broken. If they got rid of the Adobe Air client and used Java this would probably be soooooooooooo much easier.

Had the same issue, but it went away after reinstalling, took me 3 hours to download all the patches though.

You guys either need to allow it on ur firewall, or reinstall the game. If you have more problems call customer support.

same issue, oddly enough after trying to turn off lol via ctrl-alt-delete, I double-clicked the LoL icon again and the game loaded through like normal. I've also been getting the occasional FPS drops, and my in-game chat has been lagging out - I had to ctrl-alt-delete out of a champion select earlier because LoL basically locked up.

Same problem here.

Was playing LoL, closed the client and went for dinner, came back and the icon started flashing endlessly.

I just recently patched it and that close was the first time i closed it after the patch, did the patch have anything to do with it?

Also having this problem. Already made a support post about it with log files, but nice to know that I'm not the only one. Hope the exact cause is figured out!
