We do care, but no one knows how to fix it. Maybe try deleting your clientregistry.blob in your Steam folder. That always fixed other problems I have had over the years. If that does not work, just wait until the Steam forums are back up.

No, don't do that. You don't want to risk screwing your whole steam over. I can offer little but "Sorry man, hope it doesn't happen to me" :cort:

It will not mess up Steam. I have done it several times, and even mods on the steam forum give this advise to people having problems. I just hope it fixes your problem....

No, that shouldn't make a difference. Retail version is released tommorow sure, but that won't have any impact on registary I don't think. Then again... The CD keys on a retail version may differ from those that are off steam.

Ah! Well, I am going to bed now. I wish you the best of luck getting HL2 working. Don't worry though, I am sure they are updating their CD-key database right now.....roll%20eyes%20%28sarcastic%29.gif *Edit* Others are having the same problem with retail keys.

The code on the voucher isn't the one u enter in steam. I think u have to go to the ati link on the voucher, enter code there and u get another HL2 code and THAT u put in steam.
