As are many. Probably best to stick with one of the existing, larger threads discussing it - it'll be easier for Blizzard to track and respond, than for everybody to post their own. This isn't a new problem, it happened to me (and lots of others) during the beta as well, it affects some percentage.

Go to processes in task manager and shut down Agent.exe and retry. This worked for me

They knew about this bug in beta. "They'll respond to it" LOL.

The only work around I found then is to disable ALL non-microsoft services and all startup entries (with msconfig).

But apparently that doesn't even work tonight.

AH!!!! Man this is killing me i want to help everyone with the help i got and i write this in hopes some one knows what im talking about and help make it more clear. I was stuck at the Battle.net Update Agent not working/ Launching Blizzard something so i had done every trick in the book to get it to get past it to no avail. I read an article on 'This helped me it may help you' and basically i went to the start button typed in Command Prompt and Typed in 'Netsh something Reset' and i can not remember exactly what i typed but it WORKED!! someone has to know what im talking about! So we can help others!

You need to close the launcher client and open the task manager, go to Processes and 'End Process' called 'Agent.exe'
Than restart the launcher.
Worked for me =)

No it doesn't. Shutting down Agent.exe made no difference for me at all.

my battle net update agent crashes all the time when i try to start setup.exe.
Shutting down agent.exe with task manager doesn't help, because the launcher starts the update agent again, which in turn crushes.

tried the netsh ... commands. and doesnt work
Any help much appreciated
