Uh downloading CS:S through Steam isn't illegal... Steam is what you use to play CS:S and some other games.

yeah with steam you have an account, and they know what games you've bought so it wouldn't matter if you lost the CD, just get steam from steampowered.com, put your id and password in and you can download all the games you have on that account


its quite legal ^_^

Downloads through Steam are very slow. Well, for me they are anyway. Why didn't you just go out and buy it?

could be your firewall or antivirus interfering or have you considered the other possibility...........steam is the most retarded thing to hit the planet since Tom Cruise was made, it may soon be replaced by the series "Lost" though :/
