Steam is just failing.

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Hello everyone, Steam for some reason (it just started 2 days ago) to randomly lockup, it's not ingame it's while browsing the menus, and for example I'm trying to Preload MW3 but I click preload and Steam freezes. Forcing a Steam restart and it just does the samething. Someone please help.

You can try deleting all the folders in your steam folder except for the "steamapps" folder and "steam.exe." Then open up the steam.exe and it will reconfigure your steam folder and you will still have all your data.

If you have slow internet, I notice there is a big lag when the client tries to update, upload steam cloud data or when downloading or updating games which results in freezing. However if you wait long enough it becomes responsive again.
