What this guide is about
If your game often crashes or you noticed some issuses/problems it can have many reasons. First check if your computer is able to run Left 4 Dead 2 (minimum requierements:
OS: Windows® 7 32/64-bit / Vista 32/64 / XP
Processor: Pentium 4 3.0GHz
Memory: 2 GB RAM
Graphics: Video card with 128 MB, Shader model 2.0. ATI X800, NVidia 6600 or better
DirectX: Version 9.0c
Sound Card: DirectX 9.0c compatible sound card
source: http://store.steampowered.com/app/550/).

Nevertheless some people have sometimes crashes or missing/corrupted files for example after playing on a heavily modded server.

The following guide will help you to minimize the errors/issuses/crashes by using Steam´s option to verify the game caches of Left 4 Dead 2.
As I know this process does not help to solve problems with addons.

Thanks for the hint and well, checking the game cache frequently makes sense, not for hosts only.
But how to fix the missing texture errors (tree, wall, ground etc) on HL2 campains Route Kanal and other, All the files from workshop that should fix- are installed (like valve missing file content)

"Verify integrity of game caches"
Most "advice" said on Steam, actually solve only 1% of problems.
