Really there's no need Googling for a patch. If Steam is asking to be reinstalled, let it. To me it sounds like something happened to Steam to cause it to need to be reinstalled.

Also, there's no need looking for a game patch because Steam installs all game related patches itself with regards to Steam based games - in short, if the game is on Steam, the patch will have to come through Steam - meaning you can't install a non-steam patch to a steam game.

Bottom line, just let Steam reinstall itself.

Good luck.

Hey Sygnus21 I got the Metro2033 Benchmark/Game working. I used Phyxion Driver Sweeper has recommended by a Fellow Member of the Seven Forums, and while uninstalling the 296 driver and restarting i got a BSOD i believe because of the driver, i re-installed the 301.42 driver and ram Memtest86+ just to make sure ram was fine, and furmark, OCCT and everything came back fine on the Hardware side of things, so my next question, can a driver cause BSOD?

Yes, a driver can cause a BSOD. As for other suggestions, have a look at my guide, it gives a few things to look at.

Metro 2033 free!
Hey guys, Didn't know if anyone has heard but you can get Metro 2033 free only until tomorrow 10:00 am PST so if you don't already have it, get it! You will need to have Steam client installed to get it though. :)

Metro 2033 will not go fullscreen
I tinkered with the user.cfg before, and I went back in to change it, but I can still see the taskbar when I open Metro. I when into Steam and verified the files, and it re-downloaded 1 thing at it didn't help. I've tried F11 and Alt+Enter.

Metro 2033 Setup not launching.
I can't seem to get this to go. :/ The disk has a few minor scratches. I bought it used, so that's to be expected. As far as I can tell it's nothing major. I don't believe it's my drive either. I just installed Escape From Butcher Bay a couple days ago and it went fine. Autorun pops up,...

Metro 2033 - Critic Review
I installed. Played first mission. Now I have my thoughts. GRAPHICS The biggest talk about this game is graphics. Now I may not have 4 580GTX, 16Gb of RAM and 2 Xenon procesor, my hardware can pull of recent games with minor setting tweaks. While the game IS VERY detailed, it is way overdone....
