Help with glitch in steam...

Okay, I just want to change my password. But when I go to try, this is what appears. How can I resolve this?

Oh... so nobody else has had this happen and found a fix for it? Guess an e-mail is in order then...

Just move your steamapps folder out of your steam folder, uninstall steam, then reinstall and copy your steamapps folder back.

I'm in a lazy state right now, but I guess I'll have to do this. :p

With the HDD's you have, file transfer should be a breeze compared to me. Have you tried deleting the clientregistry.blob file? Doing that usually ends up updating Steam.

So I guess that means throwing your monitor out a window is out of the question... :(

Not really a fix, but it might make you feel a bit better. :o

You don't even have to do anything. Just move the steamapps folder out of the steam folder, but keep it on the same drive. It shouldn't even give you a file move\copy progress bar. Move it out. Reinstall. Move it back. It should take like 1 minute. :p

That's exactly what I did. 19Gb worth of data, less than 5 seconds of transfer time... total. :p :cool:

That's because it's transferring anything technically... More like just changing the address. :)
