Blizzard launcher canot read the update

Technical Support
I have not played Wow in a couple months. I decided tonight that I wanted to come back. When I click on my WoW icon, expecting the downloader to update me, instead i get this message "Blizzard Launcher cannot read the Blizzard Updater. Run Repair to get more information about this problem." I have ran the repair several times and even restarted my computer. I keep getting the same message tho. Please help.

Can you take a screenshot of what you currently have in your world of warcraft folder ?
this is when i load .exe http://dropcanvas.com/o1egf

this is whats in my folder http://dropcanvas.com/pnff2

Yeah that's really weird.

Not completely sure how to go about fixing this.

Try starting wow.exe directly then attempting to log in. You'll probably fail but I need it to write out a connection.log file.

Then copy and paste the contents of that.
