Red face gameinfo.txt Launch Error

Hello, recently i purchased CSS and i have not been ale to get it running. I go into steam and i try to play CSS. when i click play its says im in game, when really it dosent launch, no matter how long i wait. When i went and found hl2.exe i ran as administrator and i found this error when i launch the game.

"Setup file 'gameinfo.txt' doesn't exist in subdirectory 'hl2' Check your -game parameter or VCONFIG setting."

Nothing on google or these forums have helped.

Cheers.

Same thing is happening for all my source games (TF2, Garry's mod, and Counter Strike) except for L4D2 on my desktop, but they all run on my laptop. I even copied the TF2 folder plus the 3 TF2 steam app files to my desktop from my laptop and I still get the same error

Uninstalled Steam completely and it worked, unfortunately I didn't realize that the uninstall would delete the entire Steam folder (noob status) and therefore did not backup my saves (Most of my games are multiplayer only though, so only lost a few save files). So Uninstall Steam but remember to backup your save files
