(PC) Anyone else having problems starting BF3?

    Howrye lads and ladies , I've been having a couple of problems lately starting up Battlefield 3 through Battlelog/Origin , And a lot more people are getting similar problems since the release of Aftermath and Armored Kill -

    So About ... 2 months ago at most? Battlefield 3 won't start , It says in the pop-up box (in the bottom left hand corner of Battlelog Server Browser) as it usually does : "Connecting To Server" and "Launching Battlefield 3" Then the Origin window which is meant to come up , comes up , syncing with the Cloud Storage and Launching game , but after that window disappears , and when usually you'd have Battlefield 3 coming up on your screen , nothing happens from this point on! So I tried repairing through origin , reinstalling origin , re-downloading/installing battlefield 3 (which took forever with our sh**ty Irish internet in most parts of Ireland) , I tried editing the Regedit for BF3 , I've tried EVERYTHING anyones suggested , including some EA people , and still nothing? I waited for the next few updates but nothing has happened , was gonna buy Premium for Xmas but unless this can be fixed soon I'll spend my money elsewhere , any help would be greatly appreciated.

    PS. - It's a Russian Key if that makes any difference, (cheaper) which I got from - Which I've been told by many people is trustworthy and secure , and besides Battlefield has been working perfectly since I got it in June for my birthday. I have to use a language changer for each DLC the game gets but its safe , so if that could have anything to do with it , that sucks , but I dont think it does.

    Downloaded the plugin again?

    Try a different browser if you cant force it to download again.

    Install Chrome/Firefox and it will download the plugin again.

    I'll get firefox and see what happens, lets hope your right but to be honest I dont think this'll work , I'll tell you when I've done it!

    Didnt work mate , thanks for the suggestion though.
    (It started bf3.exe in task manager processes , as it did with chrome , but after maybe 10 seconds disappeared..)
