You should be able to exclude WoW from it's file scans and firewall. If not when WoW loads up, press ctrl+alt+del then find your wow.exe in the processes and set it to 'low' priority, that worked with my counter strike source when AVG wouldn't let it play.

I had the same problem when my dad installed some Anti virus product he brought from work(I dunno why he would bring a military anti virus to household computers). Anywho just do what FiRe^PLaY said and you should be fine

You can also try to open your firewall/antivirus settings and put WoW.exe in your exceptions/allow list.
