Steam is validating game files
I've set my BIOS back to defaults with no overclocks and eliminated all but the essential services and programs from starting doing boot, including disabling my antivirus. I'm at a standstill with both Steam and Activision support, and I haven't been able to find anything with Google, so I'm REALLY hoping someone here might have some ideas.
I don't know, it doesn't make much sense, since the download just happened and should not have been corrupt.
Yes and that worked, but I had to delete it first to get the install option.
After that I had to wait for the 10GB game to download and install itself.
If its different in any way it replaces or adds on any files.
If I ever have a problem with a game on steam this always the first thing i do.
Both were free and both download updates incessantly, so I uninstalled them.
