Can't open WoW...

Technical Support
So for some reason when I press "Play" it just opens another WoW launcher... Any tips to fix this please? I've already restarted my computer and it still has not been fixed.
Whenever I hit play it just keeps relaunching the launcher. it's like an infinite loop...

Try this:

1. Make sure that Windows is set to show hidden files.

Here's how to do that: http://windows.microsoft.com/en-US/windows-vista/Show-hidden-files

2. Navigate to the C:\ProgramData folder and delete the Battle.net folder.
3. Navigate to the WoW folder and delete the "Updates" folder.
4. Launch WoW.

Let me know what happens.

Thank you Dankorii!!!! Was a little flustered and thought i was going to have to reinstall :)
I click on my Wow icon which usually takes me straight to the log in, but now when i click the icon, it just shows black. And the only way to get out of it is by pressing the alt button, but then everything is bigger, and its is all a different color (blue). Please just try to help me if you can. I would appreciate it. Thanks
Another thing is that it has been like this for about a couple hours, and i have already tryed to logout and back into my computer, but it is still the same problem. If anyone has any advice on this , please leave a comment. thanks. I just want to get this over as soon as possible.
