    screwed up warcraft

    Ok i just recently installed both WoW and the expansion from the battle chest. It's been screwing up ever since, the interface is really glitchy and icons dont have the right pictures. And now it's freezing up more often and showing a blue screen saying something like Windows had encountered a problem and needs to shut down. I already tried with a GM but now im thinking it's more my computers fault but this has never happened to me before when i used to play WoW.

    With all problems, check out The home of Spybot-S&D! for Spyware scanning, and avast! antivirus software - computer virus, worm and Trojan protection by ALWIL Software for AntiVirus. It can also be that you don't reach the Minimal SYSTEM REQUIREMENTS of WoW. It may also be your Video Drivers aren't updated. Remember, Windows Update is actually important, and I suggest getting all the updates at Microsoft Windows Update. Also, post your System Spec.'s.

    Tried that already and nothing, even tried the repair thing too but nothing. I really don't know whats wrong with it, I had no problems with WoW before when i first installed it with the 10 discs but it cant be the disc, can it?

    nope it's still the same, did the diskcleanup and defrag
    Is there any possibility that it is the disc? if not then it's probably my computer messing up
