Connecting Steam account stuck (fix)

Steam likes to hang sometimes when you open it. It's usually something minor and re-starting it will fix it.

  1. Control alt delete
  2. Start task manager
  3. Click 'Processes' tab
  4. Find Steam.exe *32 (yours might not have the *32)
  5. Right click
  6. End process (and confirm)
  7. Start Steam again.

@Jamec:

It just restarts the process, so clearly, it can help if the issue is a transient one beyond your control that resolves itself (which most network related problems are, hence the 'refresh' button).

Obviously it won't help if there's a persistent problem preventing Steam from connecting, i.e. if Steam is down or you have a firewall issue.

You may be required to use your own brain.
