Found a fix for me at least do this

Selective Startup
Press Windows Key + R
Type msconfig
Click OK
In the General tab:
Choose Selective Startup
Disable (uncheck) Load startup items
Go to the Services tab
Check Hide all Microsoft Services
Click Disable all
Click OK
Click Restart

Found a solution for me hope it works for you. delete everything except backgrounddownloder blizzard updater launcher repair and Wow.exe they are other files that say the same but only keep the ones that have a pic icon. And open Wow.exe when your done not the launcher.
