Hello! I've started to get this problem " [img]http://puu.sh/ubEg[/img] " recently, I have tried every method (.blob files etc.) under the sun to try to get back into steam but the moment I had signed out of steam by accident and tried to log back in but I keep getting that message, I can still log in on steam mobile and through the steamcommunity page (yet I can't log into steam support) [url]http://steamcommunity.com/id/Enemyatthegate[/url] <--- my steam profile can anyone tell me what the hell is going on or anyway I can fix this? [video=youtube;kWz3Py9cmKE]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kWz3Py9cmKE[/video] I had also found this with a guy who said he is having the same problem, but I can't do anything at all: recover password, create a new account or anything...so I need your help. Thank you so much!
Have you re-installed Steam as a whole? (Deleting the entire steam folder EXCEPT for the steamapps folder) If that doesn't work try re-installing Steam completely.

[editline]11th May 2012[/editline] just did so, it did nothing. [editline]12th May 2012[/editline] help :(
Maybe there's a problem with your internet connection, or there's a firewall or proxy blocking Steam from the servers, did you try disabling a firewall?

[QUOTE=Starscre4M;35931970]what you did to fix?[/QUOTE] Now this is where I feel stupid I didn't disable Peerblock, but I had never thought to do it because I have never had to do it before! Thanks anyway :) x
I'm only having trouble with steam when it's stuck on 33 percent or more. Properly screwed due to removing everything.
I have a problem that is sort of the same, friends list won't show up and I am unable to download any games judging by the 38 guests quite a few people have the same problem EDIT Just noticed the date, but it's still relevant
Steams currently down, I assume, forums aren't working either.
Just started having this problem
Yep, community is down.
[IMG]http://filesmelt.com/dl/boop.PNG[/IMG] They must be updating servers?
Took me ages getting on the Steam forums due to constant 503 but maybe this is relevant. [img]http://i48.tinypic.com/2k1mpe.png[/img]
Well, shit.
Steam Support &#8207;@Steam_Support Steam servers are currently undergoing routine maintenance and will be back soon!
The most bullshit thing about steam is the fact if you can't connect to the servers you can't play your games people can defend it all they want, this is one of it's major flaws. Especially if your net connection is on the fritz
But I played GMod fine while it was down?

Really wish VALVe used EC2, even if just for backup situations, and CloudFront. Would make a world of difference IMO.

can you ever log in are only some times [editline]16th November 2012[/editline] in the mean time go to C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\config and delete config.vdf and you should be able to go to part were it ask you for new code

Gees, I wonder what all these guests googled :rolleyes: Shameless bump I'm sorry.

Ha! And I thought my lappy was broken. Thank you sir, for confirming that it's Steam, and not me.
How am I going to play all my Christmas gifts this way? :c
Fucking Valve, my ISP is charging me like two bucks a minute attempting to connect to chat, now I see the geniuses gave us a Christmas present. What I'm trying to say; Steam Community broke.
