    I'm having some real fun playing the demo on the ThinkPad in my sig, but now i'm gettting a permissions error as in "no permissions to run l4d2" in a small window. I had to download Steam too when i wanted the demo and it ran fine. I already went into the Steam folder where all your Steam apps are and edited the account permissions on it to fully allow everything, as well as the whole folder. There is only a single account so it is an administrator priviledge by default, how could i go about fixing this?
