Steam servers too busy (Error 53)
I just got the game and when I launch it, it says "Completing Installation" and whenever it completes, I get "The Steam servers are too busy to handle your request. (Error 53)"
Can anyone help?

Do you have "McAfee Anti-Virus" on your system? If so, go into the program and disable "Real Time Scanning". Then try to install the game again. You should be able to complete the installtion. "McAfee" tends to interfere with "Steam" game installtions as well as "Steam" updates. After installing the game, don't forget to re-enable "Real Time Sacnning".

BTW! The same may hold true for other "Anti-Vurus" programs as well.

I had exactly the same problem! - I ran "just cause 2" - didn't work. then i install and run "just cause 2 - multiplayer" - doesn't work. then i try JC2 again - IT WORKS! (but now the multiplayer mod doesn't work...)
