WoW launcher won't open

100 Undead Death Knight
Every time I try to open the launcher it says " program needs your permision to run" I click continue and nothing happens. I can still open WoW through the file location, but I can't update. The few times the launcher has opened it says "update connection timed out" then closes. Anyone no how to fix it?

What security software do you have installed? I know that AVG has been causing this recently, and there may be additional security programs that are blocking the launcher as well.
