I FIXED A PROBLEM WITH "Corrupt update files" CS:GO
Hello there, I repeatedly get the "Corrupt update files" message whenever I try to launch Counter-strike global offensive.

I've tried the following:
- Reinstalling steam.
- Reinstalling CS:GO
- Verifying game cache
- Changing the server region
- Opt'ing into a beta / opt'ing out of beta.
- Disabling / uninstalling my antivirus and firewall.

What basically happens is, whenever I launch CS:GO a 50 second (at times 0 seconds) update happens, then at 0 seconds it freezes and after 15 or so seconds I get the "Corrupt update files" message.

Any help would be appreciated.

*EDIT

I have tried many metods to fix the pac bugs I have,but after a lot of time I have finnaly found a solution.
All I have to do is log into the account of my friend,there i do an update.After that I login to my account and everything is fine.
And it is like that for every update,I simply have to update the game on an another account. ITS WORK !!!

Once CS:GO is installed, is there still any files located in these two folders?

> Steam \ SteamApps \ Common \ Downloading
> Steam \ SteamApps \ Common \ Temp

Do either of these folders contain any files or sub-folders?

Ok exit Steam Client please.
Then in this folder
> Steam \ SteamApps \ Common \ Downloading
delete the 730 and 10 folders. The folder 730 is the AppID for CS:GO, so that data is still there is likely corrupted on your drive. So when Steam tries to redownload, it's redownloading in place of corrupted data, and that is usually where u get this endless loop of such errors.

Once your delete folder 730 and 10. Launch Steam again, then see if CS:GO finishes auto-updating. If it doesn't queue on its own. Right click CS:GO game from Library listing, then click Properties > Local Files > Verify Game Cache.

If you still have the same/similar issue regarding CS:GO update after this part, then I'd suggest u check your local drivers for errors using Disk Error Check (aka CHKDSK /F)
