why does steam keep exiting?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
I'm really frustrated... I've been trying to update css so I can try out the new map... but I've been stuck at 98% since yesterday. Also, Steam keeps quitting on me. I'll leave steam running so it updates... but everytimg I come back to my computer it's not running any more.

This is crazy! I know part of the problem is that my school throttles most ports so I don't get very good speeds to begin with but this is rediculous. One of my friends is experiencing the same thing, but he's stuck at 96%

Does anyone have a solution? is this a problem others have experienced w/ steam?

Steam is really messed up as of now, their updates have tons of bugs in them.

Steam will do what steam does. Most the time when something goes awry, your best option is to restart steam, your computer, or both. The steam account on our dell has been stuck in perpetual update hell for months. If it doesn't sucessfully launch at boot and you open it, it does an overhaul update comprised of a year and a half of code and GUI modifications. Its steam.
