(05/Mar/2010) It all started after I bought Battlefield: Bad Company 2, when the audio - for that game only - became staticy. Then it went on to "infect" all of my EA games ( Need For Speed: Most Wanted, Battlefield 2142, Battlefield Heroes ). After that it went on to other software. Halo 2 for Windows Vista stopped working, then Nexon's Combat Arms.
(21/Mar/2010) At this stage I am getting pretty worried.
Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 was still working.
(07/Jul/2010) Steam has decided that "The Steam servers are too busy to handle my request" and so I cannot run Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2. I have reinstalled Steam with no dice and halfway through trying to reinstall MW2, Steam decided "The Steam servers are too busy to handle my request" and the installation was cancelled.
(08/Jul/2010) I am pretty annoyed and confused.
FYI: I have Trend Micro Internet Security Pro 2010 active (All Windows security services that are user-accessible have been disabled. Trend Micro says my computer is clean.
Any assistance? If I cannot resolve this issue by the weekend (10/Jul/2010) I am wiping clean my "C" drive and reinstalling Windows.
A way I've found from searching is - remove the file clientregistry.blob in Steam directory and then restart steam and let it update. If that doesn't work then try re-installing Steam, then re-install your games.
