Updating steam cannot contact the steam network Jerkoffforyou
The upgrade to Win 10 removed my anti virus so I re downloaded Kaspersky Anti-Virus 2015. I've tried adding exceptions in windows firewall and Kasperky but that didn't do anything, so I tried disabling windows firewall, windows defender, Kaspersky and even putting PC in router DMZ but still nothing.
I have no idea why this started happening, my setup is exactly the same, the upgrade might have triggered something, I couldn't find anyone else with this problem.
If you notice that your Steam connection only has issues during certain hours of the day (for example in the evenings between 5pm and 11pm), it is possible that your ISP is blocking or "shaping" your connection.
Please test your connection at other hours of the day and contact your ISP directly if you believe this is causing the connection issue.
So it will show you installing/updating the client Solution: Run steam client as administrator1. Right-click the Steam executable and click on Properties (Figure 1). Click the Compatibility tab, then check the "Run this program as an administrator" check box and click "OK" (Figure 2). Now, run the steam again and it will not show the installing/updating.
Note: if above method didn't work then please delete the "appcache" folder in the steam directory and let it get to sign in window.
The following fixes will resolve most update and installation errors with Steam.
And in the case of Insurgency I can't even join any server, a steam window pops up saying 'Server is not responding'.
However apart from Insurgency (and maybe all Source games for all I know) I can still join and host games without problems.
Restarting the computer flushes all kinds of system states and caches, while resetting other programs and releasing locks on files and other resources.
Clearing the Steam download cache will cause the Steam client to flush locally cached configuration data and acquire it from the Steam servers again.
