Trying to resubscribe to WoW, optimization 0%

Technical Support
I'm trying to get back into the game to play the new expansion, and this optimization thing is really putting a damper on my excitement. I've been stuck at 0% for 10+ hours. I've deleted the folder twice, run the launcher as administrator, and let the optimization sit overnight, and still nothing. This is a fresh install of WoW up to Cataclysm, I just did it last night. I have an extremely nice computer and have no idea why this is happening.

Please help me.
Rhyolíte, I would try running WoW on another User Account in Windows, and see if that helps.

I had the same problem. I gave up on the work arounds after 2 days and not getting past 1.2% done. I deleted WoW and went to account management and downloaded the updated client and cruised through. Little drastic but if you have a fast internet connection it could possibly be faster for you.
