Its a retail copy but you need a steam account to activate the game, the game is then launched though steam.

Uninstall the game, insert the disk and when it ask if you have a steam account, select no create a new steam account and install it there...

If that won't help I've no idea

You can't reinstall as the game looks to activate itself on steam before installing, I knew there was a reason I hated Steam :swearing:

Make sure its the right steam acc. I know I know it probably is, but you might be using someone elses account which would explain the missing games. Im not sure what happens when Steam VAC bans you, but I'd check to make sure I wasnt if this happened to me. Right click the steam tray icon and choose settings. It is very strange that the games would just go AWOL like that. I have never seen that. O_O

I did this yesterday and now 24 hours later NO REPLY from Steam. To say i'm p**s off is an understatemant. I stayed away from halflife cause I hated steam so much but thought maybe I was being silly and gave it a shot for Left 4 Dead and now look what happens to me. Not a happy bunny!
