Ummm because I don't steal stuff, and even if I wanted to download it, I have cox internet so they track torrent usage.

And steam does run on wine but most games do not.

>_>

I must say, in this condition I would be tempted to acquire Win7 just to dual boot for steam. Just tempted though.

I believe the RC of Win7 still works though right? Maybe you could try that just to see if the OS is indeed the problem?

The RC has been deactivated for quite a while. It would not be possible to install it.

There are a lot of programs that interfere with Steam for some reason. I don't know if this could be the cause of all your problems, but I used to try to run steam and it would just idle in my processes tray and never start once I installed nvidia network manager or something like that. There are a lot of programs though that steam has listed on their support site that do cause issues with steam running. I don't know if this would help you or not like I said but it would be worth a shot to look at the list maybe.

Maybe run HijackThis and post a log so we could see if any program/process running could possibly interfere with proper performance of Steam?

It does it from a flat install, before I even installed most of the drivers.
