    Well, it's simple. I haven't opened steam in ages, and I open it. Naturally I get flooded with tones of invites and other crap. My hard drive goes into permanent read mode and my entire system hangs. I've uninstalled and re-installed steam and it's the same issue over and over again.

    Re-installing isn't working. Any ideas?

    It says the opposite...

    Did you read it properly? Also I think you might be able to log into steam community through your browser, doing so you could perhaps remove all your invites to things this way.

    It's still not working. I deleted the steam folder and reinstalled it. It still lags the shit out of my computer and hangs my system.

    sigh..

    If you haven't used steam in a while it might be downloading all the updates. I just reinstalled on a different computer with a new key (old one was stolen) steam remembered me and all my games. It took a while to dl them but what the heck. :bounce:
