As I said in my last post, the game was crashing & locking up the PC. I found it hard to believe it was the update's fault. Never had this problem before with a game updating. Well, it wasn't my PC or a hardware/software problem. It was Steam updating the games. As i did after the first Dec. update, I googled the problem & found a video on YouTube how to fix problems with Steam. You simply delete all the files in the main Steam folder, EXCEPT the Steam EXE. & SteanApps folder. Then double click on the Steam EXE & it will reinstall everything you deleted back in Steam again. Steam sends you a code number to your e-mail account to put in a pop up message, this is to make sure it's you doing the re-installing of Steam & not a hacker. I also then ininstalled the game thru Steam & then reinstalled it again. Now the game is working great. How the Steam files got corrupted I don't know. But doing this uninstalling & reinstalling of the game, I lost all my cars I bought & money. Just in case I have to do this again, Can anyone here, from BugBear tell me which folders in the game files or Steam files that keep the cars & money i have so I can make a copy of & save them on the desktop or somewhere & then if i have to uninstall the game again, I can copy the saved folders back into the game & I won't be starting over again. At least now I can play my favorite game again. I've had Steam for close to 10 years & never had this problem before. I know it wasn't my fault, i never mess with Steam files. Anyway, if someone can tell me which folders to save a copy of, it would be greatly appreciated. Thank You to those people who were trying to help me. Much appreciated !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
