    I just bought Call Of Duty Black Ops today & went home to install it.
    I have a steam account with about 8 games on it, but its not installed.
    I done a re-install of XP after a problem a few weeks ago.

    When i install steam from the Black Ops disk (or from the installer),
    it gets to updating the Steam platform (46% complete) & just stays there.

    I read somewhere online that the game can be installed without Steam,
    but i couldnt understand some of it & i lost the link.

    Anyone got any ideas, or had this problem & solved it ?
    Can it be installed without Steam ?

    If so, take a minute out to help me please ?!

    Thanks for any help i get guys ^.^

    EDIT: I solved the Steam updating problem by going to this link,

    What i did was to install Steam, cancel it when the updating freezes,
    & go to the Steam folder & delete everything in that folder.
    Then extract everything from the download & put it in the Steam folder.
    DO NOT forget to backup the steamapps folder, that way your games will still be there.
