Steam is validating game files

- My install path is C:\Steam I am not running any mods or utilities at this point, it is a completely vanilla install.

It is using the Auto It scripting language and can either be downloaded as a script or an executable file.

It really sucks, can't really play with most of my friends now :/. It is getting really annoying, I'd really like to play a few rounds of TF2 :(.

We probably should ask the support group about this. Note: All the following happens when trying to Play L4D2. Then i get the "This game is currently Unavailable" error message.

We also recommend backing up your game saves through the Steam Cloud or onto a flash drive before attempting to fix it.

Step 1: Launch Steam Step 2: Go to the Library tab in Steam and select the game you want to fix Step 3: Right Click on the game and click on Properties Step 4: Select the Local Files tab Step 5: Click on Verify Integrity of Game Cache Step 6: Wait for Steam to validate your game’s install if it finds anything wrong with it those files will be re-downloaded and installed.

Wherever that bit of data which says the INI files have been set is stored, that is what is most likely getting re-verified.
