This is the crash report I keep getting- I am trying to ask for support of the World of Warcraft Tech forums and he says it's really peculiar that this is happening. My ram went bad Tuesday and and last night I reinstalled vista and put in new ram and this problem is not occurring. I have installed various other programs today but this is the only time I have had trouble. It did fine installing the previous versions of world of warcraft too, only this expansion gave me an error..

Ah! I solved my own problem with the help of a techie on the Wow forums- we ran the system file checker from the command prompt and it repaired the problem!

Glad you got it up and running
If you're clean now, don't forget to create a new restore point

Having grandkids is God's way of giving you a 2nd chance because you were too busy working your butt off the 1st time around

Thanks for replying with the solution. Given the popularity of WoW, you may have helped others with the same problem.
Whereof one cannot speak, thereof one should be silent.
