Launcher.exe.temp could not be renamed..help

Earlier today when I tried to patch to 4.0.3, my AVG detected that my Launcher was malware, so I had it quarantined. Turns out it messed me up and deleted my launcher, repair didn't work, so I had to reinstall.

I reinstalled Classic and BC no problem, but I can't reinstall Wrath. It gets to 99% and then I get an error message saying that launcher.temp could not be renamed to launcher.exe and the install fails.

I tried reinstalling with AVG firewall disabled, but the same thing happened again.

Delete any World of Warcraft folders you currently have on your system and use the new client installer. You can get that here: http://us.battle.net/account/downloads/WoW-4.0.0-WOW-enUS-Installer.exe

This is a good idea. The updated installer on the website is much faster than installing the game from the DVDs. Use that link and save the file to your system. Once you have it saved, right click on the installer and select "run as admin."

Thank you. I think I got it though by clearing the Virus Vault of AVG to restore the Launchers. If I'm still having problems I will do this. :)
