    Ok, lately i have been having a hell of a lot of problems with steam. You can see my system specs in my signature and steam is freezing so very much lately. I'll be playing a game and it will just freeze(most likely CSS). Anyways does anybody have any idea how to fix this or if i can even fix this?

    Maybe its not steam?

    But if you are convinced try doing a complete reinstall of the steam platform.

    Select the Steam entry in add/remove programs then select change/remove. When the uninstaller window appears it will have an option to repair Steam so select that and it should fix whatever is wrong if the problem is indeed Steam.

    I would think it would be more due to a hardware setting or drivers that are freezing you up, maybe even spyware.
