  1. The question and the wording are a bit vague (and quite wrong in a grammatical sense) making it difficult to answer your question, so here's a few from me to you:

    What exactly isn't appearing? The WoW launcher? Do you not have the WoW launcher active (meaning it should go straight to the game)?
    If that's the case try checking your system processes (ctrl+alt+del, then click on the "processes" tab) see if WoW.exe is listed

    I doubt it has anything to do with a firewall, firewalls generally just block the outgoing packets of information (or inbound) meaning WoW would load but it wouldn't be able to connect to the internet. Although you should check your firewall program just to make sure that the WoW.exe process or WoW itself isn't a blocked program.

  2. You question is pretty broad so im going to try my best to answer. ^_^

    When you double click the icon it should start a game browser/launcher. You hit "PLAY" and it should bring up the game.

    If you just dont get the launcher then when the game starts up before logging in you click a box im pretty sure either under the login boxes or at the bottom right of the screen. The launcher should launcher when you double click the icon.

    If you double click the icon and neither of those 2 appear then you either must not all the information or your computer is unable to run the program.

    Hope I was helpful! ^_^
