Hi,

Hey there

I recently had to set up my computer afresh after a heavy virus attack. I wiped everything clean, even deleted the partitions and restarted basically from scratch. Got all the important drivers etc. and reinstalled WoW.

Before that my system ran smoothly for a long time, rather surprising actually considering that I was pretty positive about having too much junk, viruses and general chaos on it. I was able to play WoW on 1600x1050 resolution with low details and raid without problems 25 man in Cataclysm.

However the first time I raided after the new setup I had major fps problems all the time, it was basically unplayable. So I started to look for solutions, changed video settings around etc., the problem stayed.

Today I searched some more and finally found a thread on us WoW forums stating that the newest drivers for Nvidia cards (version 266.58) were causing fps problems on WoW and that the older drivers (260.99) are a better choice when it comes to WoW.

So I reinstalled the older ones (followed the instructions from the support post on WoW forums how to reinstall the older ones) and ever since I get the runtime error when trying to launch either WoW Launcher or the game.exe itself.

Already tried reparing WoW itself, didn't help…reinstalled the 260.99 drivers once again just in case and it didn't help either…what can I do ? Do I have to go back to 266.58 and just forget about raiding ?

Hi,

As your using a laptop, did you also make sure that the rest of the hardware drivers have been updated with drivers from the manufacture of that hardware, or from the manufacture of the laptop itself.

Also make sure you have the latest C++ Runtimes installed.
