It could be with the steam sales that the serves are busy.

You could try verifying the game cache, that can sometimes help it., right click the game and go to the local files tab.

If you bought the game on steam, where did you get the CD?

No, he bought it retail but it is probably a steamworks enabled game so it requires steam to be installed.

Steam is here because of the existence of H20 molecules,

Steam is either mist (as seen from a kettle), or the gas phase of water (water vapor).

In common speech, steam most often refers to the visible white mist that condenses above boiling water as the hot vapor mixes with the cooler air. This mist consists of tiny droplets of liquid water. Pure steam emerges at the base of the spout of a steaming kettle where there is no visible vapor.

Pure steam is a transparent gas. At standard temperature and pressure, pure steam (unmixed with air, but in equilibrium with liquid water) occupies about 1,600 times the volume of an equal mass of liquid water. In the atmosphere, the partial pressure of water is much lower than 1 atm, therefore gaseous water can exist at temperatures much lower than 100 °C (212 °F) (see water vapor and humidity).

Close firefox. Sometimes I have to control alt delete and look in the applications there, if it does not show up, look in the processes tab and close firefox.exe. Sometimes firefox does hang on me too.

Keep digging, Watson.


Deleting and restarting the DL sometimes helps. If this is the only steam game you have, I would also recommend deleting and reinstalling steam. If it isn't...well it is still sometimes good to do. However it can take forever.
