Steam Updates for Half Life 2

By rovoco ·
I am so "steamed" about this issue that I can hardly type! Please forgive me, but this whole pile of nonsense associated with Valve's deal with Steam for what is probably one of the finest games ever produced for the PC, really is driving me beyond the professional limit! I had run the game in WIN 98SE just fine, until I was informed that Steam would no longer support the game in WIN 98SE, since Microsoft was no longer supporting the OS. Yes, we are used to this and adjust accordingly. On a new PC with Windows XP SP2, I reinstalled the game
and tried to update it. Everything went along nicely, until I was informed that the Steam server was now busy and could not accept my request. I tried closing down the Windows XP firewall, etc., but had no luck.
I tried updating several other times with the same result. Perhaps some of you have run into this before and have a solution? Any help would be greatly appreciated.
