Hello, sorry my english

I just wanted to play L4D2 today and found that is not installed in my library, I just played it yesterday and today it just give me the option to install, it says it's preparing the files, reach the 100% and never start installing, but I can run the game from Steam's root folder for l4d2 and it says I have a insecure in the launch options which will prevent me from connecting to vac secured servers... so I can't play online. please help ._.

Says it's installed for me but refuses to start regardless

I had the same problem:

L4D2 was installed earlier.
Suddenly did not show up anymore under "installed" games. (including some other Source games)
It was still available as an uninstalled game. (double click would cause reinstall - I aborted that)

I fixed it by restarting Steam. See if that works for you.

I restarted steam, restarted my computer, verified game cache. No dice. Un-installed the game but now it's telling me it's still installed and I can't re-install it. And before anyone suggests it yes I have deleted the steam folder for L4D2. So god knows what the hell the problem is.

Critter, as you wrote in your post, you have a different problem than Liark2z. I'm affraid I have little clue what to do about that either.
If you are on Windows, perhaps checking the Task Manager after you started L4D2 will give you some insights.

After restarting the PC, just restarting Steam didn't help, it showed up and loaded into a multiplayer just fine. Sorry you're still having trouble Critter.
