Wowhead Client + AVG Link Scanner =
Return to board index
After installing Windows 7 64 bit, everything seems to be working fine. Hell WoW seems to run even better. For the life of me ever since updating I can't get the Wowhead Client to upload. I keep getting this:
Is there anyway to clear the cache for Wowhead or maybe just start from scratch? I have since tried running it in compatibility mode for Windows XP which was what I had before this, but that doesn't work either.
Are you running it as an administrator?
Yes. I've tried running it with my account having admin privs and using Run As with the actual administrator account.
I'd also like to mention the windows firewall is disabled. About the only other thing that comes to mind is I use AVG for anti-virus.
I am running Win7 64bit without having to do anything special. I do use MS Security Essentials for antivirus however and have WoW on a secondary drive.
has any information that helps too.
Set up an exception for the client in AVG. I had the same issue with Kaspersky. What's happening is that AVG is scanning the web traffic, but this causes the upload to stall. Simply white-listing the client will allow it to function as normal.
I took the advise from this thread and looked into AVG. Sure enough, when I disabled the "Link Scanner" the Wowhead Client updated without issue.
Thank you for all the help!
Can a mod change the title to reflect that the Link Scanner was the issue and not Windows 7?
