    Unfortunately Austin its not a problem with you or your computer. The friends list on steam has been down for quite a while now. Some of your friends may be able to log on. There is a majour bug in the system and Steam has just given up on fixing it!

    Good Luck.

    Yes, about that. Steam friends has not been working for about everyone I think, so thats nothing to worry about. It's never worked for me and I don't mind. Anyway, you can use Its even better than Steam Friends :giddy:

    I think I've gotten into the friends system a total of 2 times. There's no hope for it, go with the crowd and get xfire.

    Xfire is made specifically for gaming, so no, it hardly uses any resources. I have it running right now and it is taking up roughly 2Kb of memory. You can even:

    Unlike other IMs, you can run Xfire while playing games. In fact, you can actually send and receive messages from inside games without having to minimize (Alt+Tab) the game window.
