Steam randomly validating game files

ATI Driver Database - Link ( Nvidia Driver Database - Link ( Direct X Download - Link (Family ID=0A9B6820-BFBB-4799-9908-D418CDEAC197&displaylang=en) If your having trouble playing online remember that Company of Heroes uses ports; 6112 30260 9100 Problem List: 1)Game will randomly crash when loading / FPS drop looks like the game is lagging.For a few months now, Steam has been validating my files whenever I open it. What exactly is Steam doing when it says that it is validating files, and why does it need to do it so frequently?

As long as the game folders are still in the proper location, attempting to launch a game will prompt a download.What happens is me getting some random freeze (I can look around, hear people using voice chat in-game, hear all the stuff like bomb ticking etc.) and I can't move, change weapon and all that stuff.Waiting about 10-15 seconds leads to drop to CS: GO menu with Timed Out message.After this I am not able to reconnect (getting Time Out after every try) until I completely restart Steam.

My Steam wants to validate TF2 at least every other day for some reason, which takes a good 5 to 10 minutes.
