Steam Engine Failed to Initialize

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
I don't know how to fix this. I start up counter strike source, and I get that message.
I've already:
Restarted
Updated
Logged off
Deleted ClientRegistry.blog
Run in Compatibility mode
Run in Administrator mode

I'm outta ideas.

try right clicking counterstrike and verify game cache if that doesn't work exit steam and delete your cstrike folder and start steam back up

Well I found the culprit. All I had to do was not enable steam friends in game. That file is corrupt or something. I deleted that file, letting steam update, and well see if it works properly now.
One last problem, everytime I start up my computer, I try to start Steam, it HAS to update what it's already updated. It's almost as if it doesn't save the updates it has. Any fixes for this?

Sounds like it might be a hard drive problem...
Trying testing your hd to see if it could be dying.

Either that or your Steam install is corrupt. You could uninstall, delete registry folder and re-install steam and your games. Thatll probably take a while so do it when youre not going to use your comp for a while.
