Team fortress 2 validating steam files 100

I tried reinstalling the game at least four times to no avail (it did let me play once, but it had horrendous stuttering issues), and I even tried reinstalling all of Steam twice. The game refuses to do anything past validating files that have already been validated, and getting an update that I already have (which I know from the brief stint mentioned above). I did decide to do it manually like you said, but that didn't do crap.

So **** it, I'm just going to reinstall the entire game for the FIFTH TIME to see if that changes anything.

I was to do an clean one without the taskbar, but I couldn't get as transparent. If you, for example, you shut down computer with steam turned on, it will not work and will validate cache again. So the game must keep the caches from you equal from the steam servers.

I didn't read the comment section so sorry if you explained something before hand, but non the less it doesn't affect my opinions and suggestions on how to improve it.

The dreaded "Validating Steam Cache Files" has finally hit me.

I would use chkdsk at this point to see if you have any bad sectors on your hard drive.

It was only my Steam Partition, and not my main one.
