Hijacked Steam Account- I will not be reporting for a while.
« on: September 27, 2014, 09:10:48 PM »
I have posted this to tell you that some [rage here] person has hijacked my steam account.  I cannot launch any of my steam apps, that includes US2, and somehow this [more rage here] person has managed to uninstall steam off of my computer...

Unfortunately, this happened hours after the installation of Alpha 11.2, however this wouldn't have caused the problem.  I am currently working hard on the issue and hope to come back with some good news in the coming days.

---------------------------UPDATE (edited)

I don't want to go on about the actual technical things, because its quite a long story.  Good news is its not a Hijacker and it was merely a software problem.  Interestingly, it was an internet service provider issue, and the ISP help staff and I resolved the problems.  (steam support never replied to my damn ticket)

Damn dude that sucks :(
The only thing you can do is prove that you're the real owner of the account but that's hard to do when its hijacked.

Having a second email or a phone number attached to it helps prove you own it.

Good luck man hope you get your account fixed

Don't you mean "hacked"? Or is hijacking accounts a different subject?

Yes, I am in constant communication with steam support via email.  Also, I have not forgot my password.  I can prove it is hijacked because the access address is in another part of Australia.  Also the error message when opening the steam client says:

Another instance of steam is already running on this computer, UNDER A DIFFERENT USER ACCOUNT... >:(
