I'v tried everything from reinstalling, changing compatibilty, run as administrator and edited the launcher config.

NOTHING works. the launcher just stops responding, I close try again and again stops responding, every now and then it will run ok patch and let me login and the everything works fine but thats seems to be on rarer and rarer occasions.

What is causing this?

Hi GenetiX,

Unfortunately this issue can be caused by any one of LoL's dependencies not working nicely, so you may have to try replacing them all :-(

Firstly:

- Close any and all background applications that could potentially conflict. You want only LoL running, if possible.

League of Legends has the following dependencies:

Directx 9.0c (http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/en/details.aspx?displaylang=en&FamilyID=3b170b25-abab-4bc3-ae91-50ceb6d8fa8d)
Adobe Air (http://get.adobe.com/air/)
C++ 2005 Redist (32 bit) (http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/en/details.aspx?FamilyID=32bc1bee-a3f9-4c13-9c99-220b62a191ee&displaylang=en) or C++ 2005 Redist (64 bit) (http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/en/details.aspx?FamilyID=90548130-4468-4BBC-9673-D6ACABD5D13B)
DotNet Framework 3.5 (http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/en/details.aspx?FamilyId=333325FD-AE52-4E35-B531-508D977D32A6&displaylang=en) or DotNet Framework 4.0 (http://www.microsoft.com/net/download.aspx)


My advice would be to try installing each of these, retrying LoL, and see if there's any difference. Also there's a fully patched, known working version of LoL available here:

how do I uninstall DirectX? also the link you provided just extracts some rar files no setup file.

BTW If I am not connected to the internet the launcher will not stop reponding, it will only cause problems after it has detected the server.

In many cases opening Lol launcher dissconnected and refreshing the launvher like a browser (F5) will prevent the launcher from not responding but it takes several minutes until it reads the version and let's me hit the play button

That would mean that the launcher shuts down not stops responding, possibly because you are completely mising one of the programs stated above, download all of them and try again.

If it's not working it could be due to faulty drivers or a bad install simply start by completely reinstalling:
Adobe Air (http://get.adobe.com/air/)
C++ 2005 Redist (32 bit) (http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/en/details.aspx?FamilyID=32bc1bee-a3f9-4c13-9c99-220b62a191ee&displaylang=en) or C++ 2005 Redist (64 bit) (http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/en/details.aspx?FamilyID=90548130-4468-4BBC-9673-D6ACABD5D13B)
DotNet Framework 3.5 (http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/en/details.aspx?FamilyId=333325FD-AE52-4E35-B531-508D977D32A6&displaylang=en) or DotNet Framework 4.0 (http://www.microsoft.com/net/download.aspx)
and the game

If you are still encountering the problem only then try to replace your drivers.
