Are you in the MoP beta? I just opened that launcher and there is an update for that. It's only a bit over 500 MB, though.

I played regular WoW earlier today and didn't get an update, so I have absolutely no idea why it could be downloading 16 GB. You might try asking on the official WoW forums.

Sorry to hear that. Looks like you're going to have to reinstall WoW. The good thing about that, though, is that you don't have to start with "vanilla" WoW and patch forever anymore. You can just start with Cataclysm (either from the disc or a digital download from your account page on the Battle.net site) and then patch it up to 4.3.4, which doesn't take nearly as long.

Thanks for the sympathy hehe
But quote don't take that long?
Bliz updater you sure?
I had to get the digital copy as I'm on a mac.
Took 10 hours first part/
Then 5 hours second part at about 200kbs sometimes higher i hope not many people have to go through
all that cause bliz knows its a well known bugg in its system but won't fix it
