right-click it, delete all local content (not sure if it removes save games or not, may want to back the saves up).

Then when that's finished you should be able to install it again from the "not installed" list in your games folder.

**edit**

or even better right click game in games list> properties> local files and click "verify integrity of game cache" and it should try a repair on the game.

The second option fixed it no problem. However if I did need to download it again and I deleted it where is the not installed listed in the game folder? Dirst2 is listed in my favorites but not in the installed area only torchlight is there.

a game will only appear once in your games list - it is either a favorite, installed or not installed - it can't be more than one of those 3 so if you removed the game it would appear in your not installed list at the bottom of your games list (only appears if you have games on your account not installed).

**edit**

here is a screenie of my games list - with favs, installed only and not installed games:

So if i do a re install on my computer and want my steam games back what do I need to do do I need the activation codes saved or once I log on they will just let me re download them? Steam needs a user guide or do they have one and I missed it.

You can just re-download it with no problems - all keys for the games are stored with steam online (as long as you bought/activated the game through steam)- they know you already own the game so you can just right-click a game not installed, click install and you're sorted - nothing else needed (which is why steam is so awesome).

What the Hell? Seriously? Medieval 2 has been 75% off since the sales started, if I'm not mistaken...
Well, I hope at least Shattered Horizon(who, by the way, also had this price since the sales started) gets a boost with this. Yesterday I checked how many people were online: 24.
This is probably the most disappointing day in the sales :/

*Edit*

By the way, if anyone is curious about Shattered Horizon and wants to try before buying, send me a pm and I'll get you a pass. I've got 2 to give away.

Yes! Install it. Install the 1.2 patch, then the 1.21 hotfix. Go into Crysis multiplayer and setup your account if you haven't already. Then install the MW:LL mod, then the hotfix for that. It's sooooo worth it.

Yeah I know and I don't want to make it worse but frankly it was kind of foolish to buy anything from D2D during a long Steam sale with daily specials.

I know, but it was a D2D sale too and steam had SF4 "On Sale" for $33. Never though they would drop that to 10 bucks. Ah well, at least I get to correct a mistake I made a long time ago. Never beating the original Half Life, picked up HL source for the $2.49.
