    Since I came back of hiatus a few days ago I have been running into this problem
    [​IMG]
    the 1st day it was only once but each day it is more frequent to the point I cannot even finish a round of TF2.

    I googled it and tried a couple different suggestions including the one most say fixed it and that was remove CCcleaner. I removed it and tried playing and was kicked again in under 5 mins for the same problem.

    So wanted to see if anyone else had run into this problem and what worked for you on fixing it.

    Thanks in advance Dadfront

    When this happened to me this one fixed it.

    Looks like that might have worked. I played a few rounds without any issues. Ill give it another day to see if it happens again but looks like you solved it. Your meme's are the tastiest meme's friend!

    The administrator thing is messing with me. I am the only user and am the admin but it wont let me run programs as admin....

    I had Ant help me out on the admin thing. I also did a couple other things on the guides to fix this and tried playing again. Well made it thru 3 rounds w/o a kick so hopefully it is fixed. Will try it out again tomorrow and see how it goes. Thanks all for the input.

    Yes I tried what you said. I have removed some programs (3rd party virus/malware fighter i.e. IOBIT and CCcleaner) they say could be doing it as well as changing my DEP. I have removed the file that creeper suggested also. I have done a few other things on the list but cant remember them all.

    Try this https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/93545993/VACAF2.3.zip

    That's a .exe someone made that tries a handful of fixes specifically for the VAC authentication error. It looks like it was made more for CS:GO but I would assume it would work on TF2 considering a lot of the troubleshooting tips are the same for different VAC protected games.

    Had this error too. I opted into steam beta and back out of it and it was miraculously gone. Maybe that procedure could help you too. Good luck!

    I will try all these. At this point I am willing to try anything that isn't illegal or immoral.
