So, I wiped my hard drive but now I can't play Fallout New Vegas no more, I don't know why since all my games are running but every time I try to launch the game gives me this error, I searched a lot in many forums and I cant find the answer. And no, I don't need to disable McAfee

1) Is this on Steam?

2) If on Steam, did you VERIFY the local content?

3) Do you have any MODS?

It sounds like part of the game was on the drive you wiped.

Yes, its on Steam.
Yes, I verified the local content (and also reinstalled the game).
No, I don't have mods
And the game was installed on driver D, just Steam was installed in the C and all my other games from Steam that are in the same folder with New Vegas in driver D are running, but I always have the problem to run them with error 53, so I have to launch Steam offline mode but that doesnt help it either with Fallout

I can't quite tell what you did wrong, but it's obvious that something important was on the drive you wiped.

My suggestion is to do THIS:

1) Keep the "STEAMAPPS" folder (move to another folder or whatever)

2) Delete Steam completely, reboot, reinstall it (perhaps to D-drive this time if space is an issue) and Sign in.

3) MOVE the "Steamapps" folder over to replace the new one.

I did this when reinstalling Windows so I didn't have to re-download all my games. Your SAVE GAMES should also be fine since they are in your "Documents" folder. I've never had an issue with that.
