steam problems HELP

#1celljr89Posted 9/9/2013 1:29:44 AM(edited)
everytime I launch L4D2 it crashes and everytime i try to verify the files it eventually crashes steam and force closes. Why is this happening? I've tried uninstalling steam and it still does it as well. I also a windows error "Steam Client Bootstrapper (buildbot_winslave04_steam_steam_rel_client has stopped working"

Try uninstalling steam, and reinstall it to a completely new location... don't put it in whatever default location, make a special folder for it (just to be sure that it's not some bad leftover file). Example: If it defaults to C:\Program Files\Steam\ Try installing it to C:\Steam or D:\ or whatever else...

You might also try the beta though if the regular steam is causing you fits I don't think the beta is going to be much better.

Otherwise you might as well start the slow process of dealing with steam support on the issue and see if they can help you. For this kind of issue I usually just try to ensure the install is as clean as possible (which is why I suggested the new folder approach). If it STILL happens then there's something wrong elsewhere and I can't tell without seeing it for myself.
