Okay, well im not sure. After a little bit of swimming around in the norton settings i found something that might help. Open norton back up, click "Settings" and scroll down to "items to exclude from auto detect and SONAR protection" hit that, click the file folder on the right and put everything from WoW in your program files in that. Then try to download the patch, if that doesnt work then i have no idea.
I'm having the same problem but I have Norton Security Suite and there seems to be no way to turn off sonar, only firewall, and that doesn't work >_<
EDIT: nvm, i found the way. lol. thanks, man!

We did released an update to the game launcher this morning. Anytime there are automatic updates you can run into security programs having problems with it.
In this situation, all of the reports have come back as false positives. I am recommending the steps found here to allow the patch.

On Norton, the simple method is to click on the security history....then highlight the removed wow exe file....then click on options (in blue to the right) and tell them to restore and allow future versions of the file.
IF you trust Blizzard, but you probably wouldn't be playing if you did not.
PS I would NOT disable Sonar....Blizzard is not the only party trying to get through during the download
