I am a software engineer and this morning as I was working on a project for my employer I was baffled as to why I could not recompile my code to an exe file. I went to the output folder and tried to manually delete the old exe that was there. But Windows told me I could not because the "Steam Client Service" had the file opened. I killed Steam and I was able to delete the exe and recompile my code.
What is going on here? Have I agreed to Steam scanning my hard drive by playing on their platform?
