Hey people,

I have recieved this error meaage posted below. Something about a runtime error.

It occured when I launched my PC not long ago. I tried restarting my PC but the error just came back. Does anybody have any idea how I make this error go away, as I was in the middle of downloading a big file and wanting to continue downloading it!

I'm not sure if its a virus or spyware of some kind so as we speak I am running a anti-virus scan, which will be followed by a spyware scan. Thanks for your help!

probably not malware, but rather a corrupted steam file

Open task manager (ctrl-alt-del) and end process on steam.exe under processes.

Now delete clientregistry.blob in the steam folder.

Now reboot your computer....steam will start automatically, re-download the needed files, install & configure itself.

Hi gerryf,

I tried what you said a few times and even tried drfragmenting, but that didnt work either.

Ive been to the steam forums and saw that somebody else is having the same problem.

I have also emailed steam, (but Im not expecting a reply from them for about a week haha).

Have you got any other ideas? I was going to try save all my Source/1.6 content and re-install steam.

This error only happened after a recent update...

so heres a little steam update for you! :whistling:

Thanks,

I just updated my pc, but made no differents, also before I restarted it after updating I deleted the 2 files mentioned earlier.

I dont have 'steam_103377_2004_11_5' although I have 'Steam__161965__2006_5_13T2_34_36C1208796.mdmp' which was in the steam folder.

How do I turn the AGP fast write off?

Boot the PC, keep tapping the delete key (possibly) F2 until it enters set up, look for it there, press F10 to save, type Y to confirm, press enter to reboot

I rebooted the PC, and pressed DEL to go into the menu.

It gave me these options
  • Standard CMOS Features
  • Advanced BIOS Features
  • Intergrated Peripherals
  • Power Management Setup
  • PnP/PCI Configurations
  • PC Health Status
  • MB Intelligent Tweaker (M.I.T)
  • Load Fail-Safe Defults
  • Load Optimised Defults
  • Set Supervisor Password
  • Set User Password
  • Save And Exit Setup
  • Exit Without Saving
And the only thing I saw to do with AGP was under 'MB Intelligent Tweaker (M.I.T)'. It said, 'AGP Clock (MHZ) - 66

Gigabyte Technology 2004 RZ. On the side it says the model name is '8S661FXMP-RZ'.

If I load fail-safe defults, its not going to do something I regret is it? like having to reinstall my grapics card or something? lol

No, the possibility of having to reset a couple of things exists but it won't remove anything, besides, the options are fail safe or optimized, you would just go back to set up and change it back to that
