How to fix the Launcher error when it stucks during "Updating files" for Mist of Pandaria Beta 5.0.5

Your launcher.exe gets stuck during updating files? This is how you can fix it.
Firstly, you should wait a bit, it takes some times, if it doesn't changed in a minute, then continue reading.
Usually this error is caused by the Agent.exe going haywire for some reason. To fix it, all you got to do is simply close the Agent.exe, delete it and restart the launcher.exe

STEP 1: CTRL ALT DEL Kill any Agent*32/Launcher.exe

 go to : C:\ProgramData\    and delete the folder (THE WHOLE FOLDER)


make sure you have have hidden files set to viewable. Programdata is a hidden file that requires this special option in folder options to be enabled.

STEP3: try to start again the Launcher.exe with Administrative privileges (right click-> run as Administrator)

if that doesn't help
STEP 4: log into your account on the website re-download the client "World of Warcraft Beta Setup" run it, its going to REINSTALL/update the folder once the Beta "INSTALL" screen comes up, exit out and RELAUNCH the "World of Warcraft Beta".exe that's on your desktop, Updating Files will go up again but give it a min and it will progress and show you the launcher and download the current update patches.
