What do I do? I tried to installed the most recent patch and it said patch cannot install, if this problem continues re-install the game", so I did and now when I went to install the game, this comes up, and when I right click the installer and select "run as administrator" it says "you do not have permission to do so"

 

So at that point I said "wtf", so what do i do?

Thanks!

All i can really suggest is that you go to battle.net and go and install the client there. and then register your game there.

That's a bootleg copy, isn't it :)

A legit copy would have an autorun config and other folders. This, however, looks like a common virus in the form of an ISO mounted with MagicISO. And lastly, a folder that has .app at the end of it is for Mac OSX, and wont run on Windows. My suggestion is to buy a legit copy and support the developer, but it's your choice haha.

As RvB stated a legit copy would not contain malware nor would a patch be considered a trojan since your anti-virus would identify the digital certification on the disk/blizzard launcher. Go grab a legit copy of the game when you can, since I presume you are missing out a huge portion of the game (i.e. the multiplayer) and Blizzard tech support and battle.net in general are amazing.

Sorry for the late reply, but I do have a legit copy, I solved the problem because my anti virus was preventing the game from updating, so after I disabled it and re-installed it worked, (I use avg)
