    Im currently in a tif with Comcast and Im waiting for my DSL provider to come out. So as of right now I have no internet. I was trying to install the orange box and right after the steam install it errors out by saying "Cannot load library from steam.dll". I was browsing last night from my phone and everyone had said just reinstall it. That didnt work for me. Also in my program files folder for steam the steam.dll doesnt show up. I explored the disk and still no luck. I just wanna play Portal :roll:


    Thank you in advance.

    Uninstall everything INCLUDING Steam. Clean your registry. Then do a fresh install of both Steam and The Orange Box. That should do it.

    Okay thanks. Ill give that a go when I get home. Do you think it has anything to do with my firewall or the fact I have no connection?? I just remembered that I had the firewall on last night whilst trying to install.

    I uninstalled and cleaned up anything left and still no luck. I called valve just to find out they don't do phone support :roll:
