I heard this earlier on..

MellisI am impressed with it. I seem to read alot of negative feedback. Is this the earlier versions of steam?

Well I'm not sure. I had it from the start, and I had not too many bugs. It's worked fine all along for me, don't know why people complain... So let shear imput people, How does Steam work for you? How long have you had it? ~Linkage :cool:

Ive set up Steam so that it starts right when I boot up my computer. As soon as its fully booted up, I look in the bottom right corner and I dont see a Steam icon. So I double click on my Steam shortcut then a message pops up and says I already have another Steam running! I then go to Task Manager and stop the process but it doesnt stop Steam.exe from running for about a good 10 minutes. Do you know how annoying that is? There are times where I want to play some Day Of Defeat but when I go to my shortcut and it gives me that popup msg, I just say screw it and go do something else. Also with Steam, it never keeps my friends list and my favorite server's list. Overall I hate the piece of crap. :mad: /flame off

Wow. :lol: Probably your computer, because my Steam loads almost instantly. The only thing that bugs me is, I can never connect to the friends network :uhm:

They have a fix for people not able to get friends list working on their forums. Also, Steam is saying that most of the problems now are client side related.

Well most of my problems have been fixed/gone, the buddy list is the main one so that makes sense.

Yeah as i said it works fine for me. Bob99b, it seems like you may have two instances of steam client installed. Try reinstalling it?? Im not sure if you uninstall the client that the actual games you have downloaded from it get deleted, You better check that first.

Im not going to reinstall it. Not worth the time and effort.

Steams not too bad. Apart from a crash here and there its fine.

Its also a decent way to collect installed mods and the HL/CS future.
