Default Is this right?

I got the free Portal for Windows and installed it. Once I ran it, it started an update with an ETA of 4 hours?

When I saw this, I was shocked. It's usually around 2.70!

I go to have a snack and lock my computer, which shouldn't affect anything running, and when I come back Steam is closed and won't open again. I'll try restarting.

EDIT: That worked.

Yeah, sometimes the server Steam decides to pick is completely jammed up so your download speed gets backed up really bad. Usually restarting Steam once or twice will fix it.

Yep. I think it was to celebrate the release of Steam on Macs.

Yeah, Portal is free until May 24th IIRC.
I already bought the Orange Box awhile back to have the add-ons for gmod.
