    STEAM+Win 7

    Anyone have issues with win7 trying to run steam in compatability mode? I had a problem last night with it, but it seems to be ok after I went with run as administrator. I recently ( week ago) bought a new computer( i7 2600, 8gb ram, HD6770, 2 tb etc...) SO far I am thrilled with it yeah, its a dell so sue me...

    Yeah, Im not sure what happened, but windows kept popping up asking me to run it in compatability mode. So, I run it in win7 compatability mode and it seems to work ok. I'll mess with it further tonight to see if I can get the exact text of the problem copied down.

    Why is that seem to usually be the answer for fixing PCs?

    because retail PCs are built with images and bloatware which generally causes havoc
