Now, I sure this has been asked many a time before but I've looked all over the place for resolutions to this but have been successful thus far.
My friend's TF2 was working fine about a couple of weeks ago, and then it started popping up with this error message. I've tried reinstalling; deleting everything in her Program Files (x86) > Steam directory except Steam Apps and Steam.exe; verifying integrity of game cache; defragmenting the cache files; running, and as administrator, for the BrokenStrawberry > team fortress 2, to which I was presented with the error 'Setup file 'gameinfo.txt' doesn't exist in subdirectory 'hl2'. Check your -game parameter or VCONFIG setting.'
The debug.log file here says '[0405/200855:ERROR:entry_impl.cc(676)] Failed to delete config/html\f_00008a from the cache.'
We love TF2 and really want to get it working again, perhaps we've missed something blindingly obvious but any help is appreciated.
