    Hi,

    until a few days ago Steam was working fine, but starting it today immediately kills the app. For a split second, I can see this: http://s7.directupload.net/images/130809/98ojrjg5.jpg Looks like it's trying to download a 80+ MB package. The window with the progress bar quickly disappears, Steam is killed.

    In the screenshot you can also see the print in console.log. Here's the text once again:

    Anyone else has this problem? Steam is dead here, can't use it. I also messaged Steam support a week ago, but yet to no avail.

    Do you remember doing anything Steam related just before this started happening?

    What if you save your Steam Apps and try to reinstall?
