  1. For those of you who get that message and get disconnected from the server after an update here is the fix:

    If restarting Steam does not resolve the issue, please exit Steam and delete the following files:

    These will be found under your Steam installation directory - by default, this will be C:\Program Files\Valve\Steam\ (this may vary if you specified a different installation folder, or if you have moved your Steam installation)

    This will make steam reupdate your user id ticket and Game key.

    Same as fist, except instead of restarting steam I just restart the game.
