You are watching: Steam servers are too busy to handle your request error code 41

I"ve been having actually some trouble trying to play some gamings on my pc for a when now. I"ve left that alone because that so long since I haven"t felt favor playing them till now. This influence Portal 2, Left 4 Dead 2 and Hitman Absolution. There may be other games with the problem however I haven"t tried to launch all of them yet.

Basically, anytime I shot to launch this games vapor will say "completing installation... X%". It will obtain to 100% then say "the steam servers are right now too busy to manage your request. (Error 53). Ns looked increase error 53 and also it claims something about disabling antivirus, which i don"t have on my computer... This message has been showing up since I put the construct together in February. The really weird point is I have actually played Hitman Absolution ~ above it before while i was waiting for my R9 290 come arrive, but now it come up v the error too. 


I can launch the exe file in the heavy steam directory for both Portal and also L4D. Portal 2 gets as far as the first loading screen before closing, but I can acquire into the L4D key menu and try to start a game before that crashes. Hitman doesn"t open up at all. I checked task manager. I"ve tried an altering servers to complete the installation, and deleting the appcache and also config files in heavy steam to view if the would deal with the problem, yet it hasn"t. I"ve reinstalled Portal yet that didn"t fix the difficulty either...


This is weird too but ~ above the vapor support web page it states they are experiencing a high volume of tickets.
