How to solve "Error 53"
If Steam reports "Error 53" when you try to install or run the game, that means that Steam was not able to install the game completely. That is most usually caused by overzealous antivirus programs.

The simplest way to fix that is this:
  1. Uninstall the antivirus program.
  2. Install the game.
  3. Run the game once, to be sure that it works.
  4. (Optional) Install the antivirus program again.

Come risolvere il problema "Errore 53"

Se Steam vi ritorna un "Errore 53" mentre tentate di installare o far partire il gioco, questo significa che Steam non è stato in grado di installare completamente il gioco. In genere questo è causato da un software antivirus troppo zelante.

Il modo più semplice per risolvere il problema:
  1. Disinstalla il software antivirus.
  2. Installa il gioco.
  3. Fai partire il gioco una volta, per essere sicuro che funzioni.
  4. (opzionale) Reinstalla il software antivirus.

Jak rozwiązać problem "Błąd 53"

Jeśli Steam zgłasza "Błąd 53" kiedy próbujesz instalować lub uruchomić grę, oznacza to że Steam, nie był w stanie w pełni zainstalować gry. Zazwyczaj spowodowane jest to przez zbyt czuły program antywirusowy.

Najprostsza metoda naprawy to:
  1. Odinstalować program antywirusowy.
  2. Zainstalować grę.
  3. Uruchomić raz grę, aby upewnić się że działa.
  4. (Opcjonalnie) Ponownie zainstalować program antywirusowy.

Translations are welcome here, but in the interest of tidiness, all other comments/complaints on this thread will be deleted. Thank you for understanding.
Anyone who has further problems with this error, please post a separate thread. Thank you for understanding.
Why not just temporarily disable the real time scan on the anti-virus? No need to uninstall.

I am currently using Mcafee (free subscription I swear ;)) and I have to do it with a lot of games on steam.

I know you said no comments but uninstalling AV is overkill

I say that because a lot of AV programs have various "levels" of disabling that some users don't understand so they think they disabled it, but they didn't. And some AV cannot be completely disabled from within options.

Note. DO NOT uninstall your antivirus. It is an overkill. Especially if you're a subscriber like me.

Note to developers. Quite a rude way to solve an issue. Not really polite to your costumers at all. Immature way of dealing this problem is half way on Steam(Valve) but also it's on you. So do try to solve it maturely without a "simple" uninstall something that PROTECTS your PC and then OPTIONALY reinstall.. Really.

Delete this comment if you will. It will just be a proof of how you avoid problems with something as huge(not a trivial matter) as this.

Thank you. And enjoy

It's a problem of the antivirus software to be honest, so it wouldn't even be Croteam's job to solve it.
Every security suite works differently and it's not really Croteam's job to provide specific instructions for each one of them when it's not even the game's/steam's fault.

They were kind enough to actually look into the issue and provide a working solution. If you have a better one, then write a complete guide for whatever software you've got there instead of complaining.

Steam Fehlermeldung "Error 53" lösen

Falls Steam den Fehlercode "Error 53" beim installieren oder starten anzeigt, bedeutet dass Steam war nicht in der Lage das Spiel vollständig zu installieren.
Das wird meistens durch eine Blockade des Anti-Viren Programms verursacht.

Simple Lösung des Problems:
  1. Anti-Viren Programm deinstallieren
  2. Spiel installieren
  3. Spiel starten, um sicherzustellen das es läuft
  4. (sofern gewünscht) Anti-Viren Program erneut installieren.
