Steam totally broken, Error -138

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Hey guys I am having a crazy problem with steam. The browser, community, workshop, store page don't work at all and show error -138, and even going to the webpage through chrome does not work, it just says unable to access network. It works sometimes but its here and there. This is happening a few days after a reformat but everything went well computer up to date in every way.

Windows 8.1 fully updated, Bitdefender Full Suite

Tried Disconnecting router, Turning off Firewall and Anti-Virus, Restarting, Googling didn't reveal much in the way of fixes and I could really use some help.

When I used peerblock (before I realized it really doesn't do anything at all for 99% of people) I was always confused why programs didn't work, sometimes I'd spend an hour looking for the fix before realizing it.

I'm not sure why this causes so much confusion.
