Validating Steam Cache Files - TF2
Hi, I've been having this same problem for 3 weeks now. Every time I try and start TF2, I have to wait for a good 10 minutes until steam "Validates" it's cache files. I could use some help on how to PERMANENTLY rid myself of this annoying problem. Thanks.

It happened with me. I don't know how to fix it though. I can play now. Contact Valve and see what they say!

Same issue, although it was worse a year ago, when the files were done validating it used to say steam server were too busy no matter what and then when you clicked on TF2 again it went right back to validating files and saying the server was too busy. I'm just glad that the game launches in the end now.

Well, all I can say is at least I'm not alone lol. I hope this will somehow get sorted out sooner or later.

I'm sorry, but you cannot stop it. It's just downloading screenshots, background files, etc.

Just wait for it to load until it says all files successfully validated. Then play.
