Validating files

When the database reads the block from disk later, it recomputes the checksum and compares it to the stored value.If the values do not match, then the block is corrupt.I was wrong, though, since the validation found no problems with the installation and the game continued to not launch from the same error.I'm curious as to what exactly the verify option does.I've also run the Disk Checking tools from my C Drive Properties Tools menu, as well as run "chkdsk /f" which runs chkdsk on boot, neither run showed any errors in the drive.I've set my BIOS back to defaults with no overclocks and eliminated all but the essential services and programs from starting doing boot, including disabling my antivirus. I'm at a standstill with both Steam and Activision support, and I haven't been able to find anything with Google, so I'm REALLY hoping someone here might have some ideas.

) This happened when I was trying to make Portal 2 and Stanley pabs together and I deleted some files accidentally.It has happened on two games now: Total War Rome II and Call of Duty Ghosts.Both games crash frequently and both games find files that fail to validate, but they NEVER have all files successfully validate and I've been unable to get either to run without crashing after 10-30 minutes.So I clicked the Verify thing and I could play Stanley pabs again! If you encounter strange behavior while playing a game, one of the first things we recommend is to verify that your game install is not corrupt.Some of the latest versions of Microsoft Windows (such as XP) do not support the needed Java software that the File Validator uses.This is evident if you do not see the "All folders" and "File Contents of" panes on the File Validator page.I have 4 other games installed on Steam and all of them are able to successfully validate all files.I've tried completely uninstalling and reinstalling the offending game to no avail.If its different in any way it replaces or adds on any files.If I ever have a problem with a game on steam this always the first thing i do.

I decided to make a quick link out of it and open the process for peoples reading these instructions.
