when is the last time you verified your local cache and closed down Steam?

Try launching it from the SDK (Click SFM from the library, launch SDK, then launch SFM from there)

As soon as I click it,the "loading" screen only stays from a split second,then it goes away with nothing else being added on screen(besides what I already had up).The error message I get after trying to load SFM never seems to pop up after clicking SDK.

Sorry for all this trouble,I'm not really good computers at all,but where would I find that?

Sorry PoweRich, but it has been SO long since I used XP, but if I remember correctly you can accessit either through the Control Panel or through Right clicking on Computer in the file browser.
