This isn't right. Steam HAS been crashing my computer EVERY time it loads (ON BOOTUP!). It was annoying. I diagnosed the problem, steam is the problem. I kept on restarting my computer, it kept crashing, right at the time steam loaded. I went into safe mode, where nothing else boots but the windows components. I uninstalled steam, BANG! It magically works again! Anyone else have this issue?!confusedx.gif

Ok now this isnt supposed to sound like a flame but.........

Honestly, fix your computer and it will work fine. Chances are you have something wrong with your configuration.

Agreed. Millions of people get on with Steam perfectly, myself included.

that may be true, but millions of people do not share the same precise hardware and software configuration - so there's got to be some that just won't work (readily) with steam. (can't cover all eventualities.)

the only problem i've had with it is offline mode, since i use a physical switch to connect/disconnect my broadband connection, and i don't like restarting my computer. steam sees that i have been online, and, unless i disable the network and then restart, i can't begin steam in offline mode. if i connect to access steam and then disconnect, of course, it works fine. unless i exit steam completely and then try to run it again without reconnecting. then i have to shut down steam, disable the network, reboot... very annoying. steam people told me: "that's just the way it runs."
