Okay, so I was trying to install the WoW Trial a couple days ago, and whenever I open the download client/wizard, I receive this message: "Failed to read the information from the internet. Close all other applications and try again." I initially thought something was wrong with the WoW servers and what-not, but then I tried to access Skype to screen capture with a friend who is experiencing a similar problem. Skype successfully downloaded, but has yet to connect to the internet.
What I've tried:
* Adding a rule to allow the program.
* Turning off Windows Firewall.
* Editing the "hosts" file in System32>etc
* Running as Administrator
* Safe Mode
Also, it's not that the internet is down or anything, as for I am asking this from my Internet Explorer browser.
