I can't find servers anymore?
Yesterday upon launching Team Fortress 2 for the millionth time I noticed that I could not find a single server in the server browser, nor could I join a friend's game in progress (Failed to connect after 4 retries). On other games, such as Left 4 Dead 2 or DOTA 2, I have no problem finding a game. I would also like to note that yesterday my Google Chrome stopped responding outright, giving me Error Code 138 every time I tried. Mostly I am wondering if anyone else is having this problem, but a fix would be a miracle. So far I have tried the following to no avail.

-Adding the program to Firewall exceptions.
-Disabling the Firewall entirely.
-Turning off virus protection
-Restoring the system to a point preceding the incident.
-Flushing the DNS

If you have had this problem with either TF2 or Google Chrome, please say so here. Any ideas for fixes are also welcome. I just want to get back to collecting hats.

-I should also note that I can connect to the item server, just not game servers.

Thanks and Godspeed.

Ok, considering what I have tried and failed to reslove both issues I would have to say that google chrome must have had an update which is causing these issues. If we can contact support and let them know they may be able to fix it

Try right clicking and going to beta and look for steam pipe. It helped me with my half life being messed up

I encounter this problem every once in awhile. No idea what the problem is, I'm afraid.
