Confirming that #2 worked for me. Took 2 minutes.
I'd love to know why Blizzard couldn't do any better than "run as admit pl0x"

Thanks for the info mate!

For all those asking where the host file is, you need to take the time and finish reading. It says where it is.

************************************************************************************************************
PLAN 2 (2012.5.31)
*************************************************************************************************************

Windows User

1. Close Diablo 3.

2. Copy the file "hosts" to desktop. (*1)

3. Right click desktop's "hosts" file > Open > choose "Notepad" > OK

4. Copy following words and paste below.

5. Then File > Save file.

6. Copy desktop's "hosts" file back, and Overwrite.

7. Restart Diablo 3, and it will connect to enUS update Server.



P.S.
1. The "hosts" file is in "C:\Windows\System32\drivers\etc\hosts" <-------


2. If you can't see the file or folder, you can see the following microsoft web support.
How to show hidden files
Winsows 7

Windows Vista

Windows XP

3. You can delete the words after you update
