Another problem is the DRM, which restricts users from playing the same game on different computers and can also require that you be logged online when you are playing the game.
This means that if you buy a game by mistake, or if you only discover that the game doesn’t run on your computer after you buy it, then tough luck!
Things I've tried include: Granting and denying access through firewall Turning firewall off and on Reseting files (steam://flushconfig) renaming Client to Client Regestry I do not want to remove steam and reinstall it.

Valve use the software to release their own popular titles, such as Left 4 Dead, but they also publish a huge list of titles from other game developers, including all of the biggest selling PC and Mac games of the moment.
Steam is the program that many gamers waited a long time for, and for the most part it is everything that they wanted, but there are a few issues with it.
Despite these flaws, Steam is a great idea and it has changed the way we buy and play computer games.
Steam will not download any game or update , for some reason however it will download the workshop files and updates The downloads will be in que and steam will attempt to download them, but it won't do anything, it'll stay like this for a short amount of time (longest one was about a minute shortest was half a second) before giving up and moving onto the next one.
Steam also has a number of add-ons and Indie games, and they offer competitive prices on all of their games.
Created by Valve, Steam allows gamers to but their games online and download them directly onto their desktops.
Steam is a revolutionary program that does away with the need for computer game stores, CDs and other things that prolong the agony for gamers.
In the past, as soon as a new game came out, they needed to go to the shop and buy it, but not all stores sold computer games, so they had to find a specialist one that did, and then they had to take the game home, install the CD and only then, after several hours, could they enjoy their game. Just browse through the games on offer and then buy and download the one that you want. Steam have games for both Windows and Mac Operating Systems and their huge collection of games are listed in a number of categories, from Sports Games to Action Games and everything in between.
