I reject your reality and substitute my own.

It could be the launcher updating. I've been through the beta since early Oct and that's how it would usually update. After graying out it would eventually close and then a moment later reappear.

SOMETIMES it would not reappear. In those cases it was because it hadn't fully stopped.

Try this, close the launcher and after say 10 seconds pull up Task Manager (sorry, I'm still running XP so I don't remember exactly what it's called in Vista / Win7) and under processes (not applications) look for launcher.exe. If you see it running kill it.

Then try launching the launcher again. It just may need a min or two to update itself.

Hopefully your issue has been resolved by the time you read this.
