Everquest launcher stuck at updating

everquest launcher stuck at updating-71

When i open up my launcher it starts out by being stuck at «Updating tools 0%».

When i press «PLAY» i immediatly get stuck at «Launching» (tried killing the before pressing play aswell).tried disabling peer–to–peer. Hello, Can you please check your security software?

Equally at the time we were noticing other services, I think there was m Player, Ten, and there was another one which was Westwood Chat.

I think it was games of Monopoly you could play over Westwood Chat at the time.

However, since then whenever l launch i still get the 'waiting for update' error, even though the entire functional game resides on the external drive.
