    Ok here i got one for you ive been having issues with steam for about 2 months now, i sent them pics of my cd key and crap and all they did for me was reset my password, i explained to them in the message that i couldnt ANY menus except for login which doesnt even look like the login screen. (its weird) but when i try to delete the winui.gcf file the message i get says (Cannot delete winui : Data check (cyclic redundancy check)

    tell me what the hell that means... i cant uninstall steam, for control panel or anywhere... i think ive been hijacked or som3thing..

    Posted by cryptodan If you are having issues with Steam may I suggest heading over to http://forums.steampowered.com/forums/index.php instead of taking help from someone who doesn't know what they are talking about.

    Sorry for the long bump here, but you don't have to disapprove for that reason..
