Ever since 1.2.3 I haven't been able to play because every time I click yes to updating Minecraft it freezes at the "Updating Minecraft" screen. I have went to deleting my Bin folder to .minecraft folder but it still freezes there, I have deleted my client and downloaded another but it still doesn't work (I have tried Force Update). How can I fix this?

Register or log in to remove.

Ive had this issue since 1.0

My problem was the anti virus, i have AVG and i hear nornton also has the same issue.

What you need to do is the following

AVG, tools, advanced settings, temporarily disabe AVG protection (third down on the right), do the minecraft download then re-enalbe AVG.

Goes without saying not to go on the internet when your antivirus is off cause you wont be protected.

There is also an option on that menu to allow an exception but it didnt help for em

For other anti viruses you will have to google how to temporaily shut them off

Hope this helps
