Ok so when I go to play l4d it will will not start and says "The game is currently unavailable. Please try again at another time." I haven't played it in nearly a month because of this, I've tried launching it through the folder path and it will start up and play, but I have no online play. I was going to just reinstall it unless anyone knows another solution.

    Try deleting your ClientRegistry.blob file in the steam folder, then try to launch the game. If that doesn't work, backup your steamapps folder (also in the steam folder) and reinstall steam. Put the steamapps folder back in there once reinstalled.

    Find a game that does not get that error, launch it, quit, then re-launch l4d
