Unfortunately the same can't be said about the Witcher 2 through D2D, which I have to completely redownload even though I have it the folder in which the game installed to.
Sucks that the only fix was to format/reinstall, but it doesn't sound like it was a steam issue.

Did you ever try making a guest/secondary user account, give it admin privileges, and install it via that account? A similar thing happened to me as well, and doing that worked. Don't know why--probably more a windows thing than a steam thing.

Prob got a trojan, or worm and its bugging up the system, 99.9% of windows problems are solved by a reformat, Its completely normal and healthy to do a reformat 3-4 times a year
