So I'm on Steam and out of nowhere I'm like huh?

post #1 of 34
Thread Starter 
I'm downloading Darkspore, and then Steam decides to just go offline. I think ok, maybe I lost internet. Refresh some webpages. Everything looks fine. So I try closing and restarting Steam and get "Connection Error" "Could not connect to the Steam network". I tried restarting my computer, nothing. Internet still works fine. I've reset steam a few times already and nothing. Any ideas?

At first I thought that might be it but then I noticed that my girlfriend, using steam on her laptop is still logged on. Would it be just my account? If so then shouldn't I not be able to log into the website either?

my solution to these issues is to delete random parts of steam. client.blob is a good start.

Why stop there? The first thing I would do is format my drive and reinstall Windows.

Eh, from the sounds of it I might as well start from scratch. Toss the whole computer and build myself a new one.

pfft, client.blob or what ever the heck it's called does seem to fix a lot of issues with steam if deleted, and i've had parts of steam get corrupted before killing it I don't recommend deleting the steamapps folder though.

It's a surefire way to rule out your machine as the culprit. Think about it.
