So my computer has been stuck on this white box, which is the World or Warcraft Setup

There is a logo to the left screen wth a disk.

There's no bar movng but the dots are.

How long is this likely to take? Anyone know.......

I'm not sure exactly what you're talking about but it shouldn't take too long. If it's the prepatch setup I believe the launcher states it should take from 15-60 minutes. If it's been going for 90 minutes then I'd start to worry.
I recommend either restarting the launcher or attempt to start the game from wow.exe

I've never seen this box before either, it kicked in after the main screen had finished its download

I'm having the same problem, it only says "Checking for updates..." for maybe 5 minutes or so, and then stops and gives me this error.

"Failed to run a required program (Agent). Wait one minute and try again and if that doesn't work please restart your computer and try again."

Error Code: BLZPTS00007

I was having the same problem so I bypassed the launcher. Open up the file location and just run WOW instead of WOW Launcher. Worked for me

If anything acts goofy like that on startup and you're running Windows 7, try right clicking the icon and clicking "run as administrator". This will usually fix most file permission issues and misc. startup issues.
