  Mytob 18:07 03 Feb 2006

Ok so iv got hl2 and wanna come back to play it again after a few months of not using it. So i load steam and after waiting for it to update which it never does i get the chois of loging in or creating a new account. So i click on the login button and am presented with the following message

a href="click here" target="_blank"> img src="click here" border="0" alt="Free Image Hosting at click here" /> /a>

iv logged in befor to steam with no probs atall and yes i am connected to the net :) any ideas?

Are you using a router? Are there ports that you need to open? If this link doesn't appear correctly, I wouldn't be surprised but here goes;

Give TCPView a try - leave it running and see if your computer is hooking up with the right servers/ports;
