I have a strange problem: i logon, i chose my char, press enter...the game start to load (the blue bar)...but after is full loaded the game doesn't show up...if i press alt-tab the process is ok...but nothing happens. I reset all to default and again the same problem. I reinstalled the video driver and again...nothing...; also i disabled all add-ons...nothing...

I really don't know what to do now...

    Try running the Repair utility. This will check the installed game files for possible problems and replace them with clean copies if necessary. Look for repair.exe in the game directory.

    Repair utility hardly ever works.

      1. See if you met the system requirements
      2. Check if your server is up
      3. Ports forwarded? 0_0
      4. Is your WoW out of date
      5. Contact me if anything else fails.

    Instead of deleting this question, it should be closed but left here so that others can see the solution that worked. I doubt many people would think to try turning off Yahoo Messenger.
