"abnormal program termination"

Technical Support
I tried installing the new patch today and like everyone else is now having trouble it took 3 tries of it timing out to get it finished and now I either get "abnormal program termination" when I launch the launcher or I luckily get past that and click play only to get a critical error of " not enough storage data". I looked saw that for the storage data i should delete my WTF, Cache, and Interface folders so I did, but now I can't get past "abnormal program termination" and I get shutdown at that point everytime. What do I do? I was just fine with data and everything last night.
Edit: Debug Error!

Program: C:\Program Files\World of Warcraft\Launcher.exe

abnormal program termination

Thats what I keep getting now 5 seconds into launching the launcher

Edit: Looks like everyone else will get help except for the few? Cause thats what its lookin like
I'm in the exact same situation. Launcher crashes before I even get to the sign-on screen. This, after 18 hours of "optimization" and download, refresh re-install from backup, and the whole process all over again. From the progress bar at the bottom of the launcher, the bulk of the download is complete - the bar is green, all the way at the end, and the message below it states: "Applying non-critical updates. This will take some time." Yeah, no kidding!

The specific crash error is:

"Debug Error!
Program: G:\World of Warcraft\Launcher.exe

I know Blizzard often asks for log files, so here's only the most recent section of mine:

I just tried again, and found that if I click "Play" in the 5 seconds before the launcher crashes, I can get into the game. Ironically, I was in for less than an hour before the program crashed again, this time while trying to zone into an instance (filled out the crash report). Now, when starting the launcher, for some reason I suddenly have another 260mb to download, when an hour earlier it was complete. This is very strange behavior...
Bump.
Bump. Since the patch I am having the exact same issue. If I go to program files, world warcraft, I can launch the game manually. However, once in the game, I keep crashing. Get an error that a trillion ram is unavailable. I am exageratting slightly, but the amount of ram is HUGE. It is almost like some kind of memory spike causing the program to crash. Had no problems prior to the patch. Any help is appreciated
