Ive had the same problem, but it only took me like 10 mins. Still annoying though, uhh, Next time when you luanch tf2, let it validate, play for as long as you like, and wait for tf2 to shut down in your processes.

If this persists then you may be seeing early signs of a hardware problem with the computer. TF2 has some of the largest single files of any game on Steam and they are like canaries in a coalmine for data corruption. A problem that corrupts one bit in every billion bits of input/output shows up far more frequently when you handle files of four of five billion bits, and TF has a couple that big.

my TF2 just broke this time it stil does the validation thing and says it has finished only to do it all over again so I can not play
TF2 at all not even beta I can spawn TF2 related things in gmod ether. Also i have preimium on
TF2 which sucks because i can not play TF2.
