    Steam - cannot connect to servers


    Hey all,

    I just got a copy of Windows 8 Pro and did a clean install, and so far I love the OS ! But I'm having a problem with Steam that I didn't have on Windows 7.

    Every time I try to log in to my account, I get an error saying "Steam is having trouble connecting to the Steam servers."

    I have tried re-installing Steam, deleting the ClientRegistry.blob file, and resetting my firewall. Nothing has helped.

    I did some quick research about the problem and couldn't find anything that worked.

    Anybody have ideas? I'd really like to play my games on Windows 8.

    Thanks for the help, and happy holidays!

    Nevermind, Steam magically started working. Guess it's just a bad day for the servers, lol.
