I updated Origin this morning and now I can't play any games through Steam. What gives? Is there any fix for this?

Usually two overlays fight each other and crash.
Used to happen with xfire as well, that's why I stopped using them when I started with Steam.

Disable the Origin overlay. If it was already disabled it may be enabled now.

Yes, I did that and it worked. The other guy's comment made me realize it.
