hi everybody, first of all let me jus say thanx for reading this post, even if u dnt reply.
I am running 64 bit OEM Vista Ultimate, and have been since jan 28th. I have had a range of problems, bbut most have been fixed/worked around, but i cant seem to sort this 1.
As a gamer (specifically CS:S) i rely heavily on Valves Steam app, and (thankfully) this has been working fine since day one. However last week sometym it stopped working, when "connecting to account".
I have uninstalled/reinstalled/system restored/restored backups/ran spyware and registry cleaners/uninstalled/reinstalled updates, but to no avail.
Anyone had the same problem/got ne suggestions?
Here is the precise procedure:
launch steam, (online or offline mode), steam updates, steam pops up saying "connecting to account xxxx", then a windows box pops up saying "steam has stopped workin, windows is checking for a solution to the problem", before finally making me click to close the app.
Note: Steam.exe *32 is still present in task manager processes, despite being closed.
PLEASE HELP, has someone stolen/hacked/removed my account?
il will post if i discover anything new.
I will u/l a screenshot (plz note that hide ip is NOT running, and i have made no changes to any firewall/router configurations or installed any new software.
Thanks agen, all comments are appreciated, no matter how irrelevant/unhelpful they seem!
