Does any one know what will happen if you reistall
steam, will it delete your friends list ??


It should not, I believe your friends list is stored online.

You can go to http://www.steamcommunities.com and login to your steam
accoun there, you should see all your friends listed there.

Try it from a different system if you're really worried, but as I recall
the Friends list is stored online, not on your computer.

I've got the fix....

Saw this somewhere dont remember who to give credit too =/


"BEFORE you do this, make sure this is actually the problem. One easy way to tell is by trying to access the "Network and Sharing Center" or by looking at the network icon in your taskbar. If you cant get into the network center or if the network icon has a red X and youre sure you are connected to something, then you have a WMI problem."

For users with the Home editions of Vista:
(Credit goes to SWAndersen)
Go to the command prompt (hit run and type in cmd.exe)
and type this in:

net localgroup Administrators /add Local Service

(optional)
then you can type this in:

net localgroup Administrators

and if LOCAL NT AUTHORITY/SERVICE is listed, then it worked. Now go reboot.

NOTE: THE REBOOT IS NECESSARY
OTHERWISE EVERYTHING YOU'VE DONE WILL GO TO WASTE

Adding a local service to admins isn't really that great of an idea.

But it helps................
It has worked with everyone else on the internet...

1. Really, everyone else on the Internet?

2. Creating a security hole as a work around isn't really a solution.

Alright dude, ur wish....
But let me remind everyone else...
This method has worked for EVERYONE who has tried it b4, and they are having NO problems.... They've reported NO such thing as security holes or things like that..
Security hole or not...
if u have a good antivirus or firewall, it's good enough...

Everyone who "doesn't want to take the risk" can live with
"hl2.exe has stopped working"....
Like it or not...

I'm just trying to help...

Actually his suggestion to open a hole in your network security wasn't
that great of a suggestion. It may fix the problem, but could cause
others. Would be better to ask Valve support for assistance, just to
double-check and see if that's the only solution.

Besides, he types you as "u" and your as "ur" (which is hallarious,
because "ur" isn't your, it's actually an abbreviation of "you're", so
he's saying "you are wish...." in a literal sense of the word), do you
really want to take any advice from him without doing a bit of your own
research first?

(Likewise, I'd hope no one here takes any of my advice blindly without
double-checking.)

Ah, thanks Andy. Yes, that's a heck of a step just to get a game running.
Checking with Valve is better advice.

Great line, "Security hole or not..."!!

My god
"you" (i'm not using 'u') people here are peer torture...
all i wanted to do was provide a little help,
but no... i get interrogated for no reason...
ruthless people...
No wonder this place has such few members...
I'm sorry... I don't think i have enough credit to help here..
I'm sorry if my help made you people angry...
I'm sorry for using 'u' instead of You and 'ur'... that's my way of speak...

There... now don't go "double-checking" or "researching" for my apology...
Other forums provide me with comfort or are just satisfied with my help, but it's not the same here... I get insulted and spat at instead just for saying "ur" or "u"...
This is probably my last post in vistax64.com, so good bye...
I hope u torturers can continue torturing others and make this beautiful looking forum a deserted hell...

My, you're sensitive! "Torture", "ruthless people", "insulted", "spat at"!
And nobody was interrogating you - perhaps you don't know what that actually
means. Any more than I know what "peer torture" is (if it's a different
thing from "pure torture"...).

The "ur" comment was all in a paragraph starting "Besides". Andy's main
point, and mine, was in his previous paragraph commenting on your advice to
"take the risk" by reducing system security and potentially causing other
problems just to get a game to work, and he recommended the OP seek other
solutions from Valve support.

If you DO ever return to Deserted Hell, please don't keep snipping out a
thread's history from your posts (like you just did again despite being
asked not to); it helps keep continuity. Meanwhile, good luck with the
comfort you obtain from your other forums.

I've always considered myself a bit of a masochist.

Spelling:
It should be I'm, not "i'm". "pure", not "peer". "all" should be
capitalized. Also, it's not necessary to use 3 periods, usually 1 will
suffice.

God, I could go on forever.

P.s.- You're so easy. Take a breath, don't let every little thing get to
you or you are gonna croak before you hit 16. Take a typing course or
play more MMOs. I learned to touch type playing EverQuest. Shift key is
a great thing, and you don't have to press Enter except at the end of a
paragraph or thought.

Back on topic, and for the record, my 3 Vista Machines run Half-Life
games without crashing, no workarounds necessary. Drivers, BIOS Updates,
and TLC are better suggestions than "Make a huge hole in your network
security, and it'll never crash."
