Left 4 dead 2 not launching.
Whenever i try to launch Left 4 dead 2, it's say's "preparing to launch left 4 dead 2" *Then doesn't launch at all when it's finished preping.
I've Validated my files, reinstalled the game, even reinstalled steam.
I've also defraged my files, still nothing.
I've noticed with task manager that the process instantly closed, but my firewall is turned off and i'm only using Microsoft Security Essentials as an anti virus.
Any help?

I have the exact same problem. Portal 2 won't start, either. I checked my processes using task manager, and it closes after about 5 seconds and uses no CPU. I can't figure anything out...

Someone halp us.

I think it's an App Crash, but i have no idea what's causing it.
