steam authentication failed? WHY?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
so I went to play DEFCON for the first time after I had to confirm my email address and stuff because I was "on a new computer" when actually I had just reinstalled steam, anyway so I launched the game and it said "demo user" and steam authentication had failed, I reinstalled the game but still got the same thing. any ideas?
