Being Asked to Have steamservice.exe Make Changes to Your Computer?
This is something that has recently happened to me when I start DE:HR, I get a pop up asking me whether to allow "steamservice.exe" to make changes to my computer. Without expanding it, it says the publisher is unknown, but when I do expand it mentions it being in the x86 folders.

Whether I do or not seems to have no bearing on how well the game plays as it seems completely random when the graphics stop working and freeze the rest of my computer, forcing a hard reboot. I've verfied the integrity of the game files with no errors and just ran a virus scan.

Is this happening to anyone else? This only happens with this game.

This worked for me:

Go to this directory:
C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\bin
then run the following command with an administrator account:
steamservice.exe /repair

It's happened on a few other games since then, and seems to have repaired itself somehow. Odd.
