I remember reading somewhere that the file that's being downloaded repeatedly is an anti-piracy measure, so you don't have to worry about that.

When's the last time the game ran fine for you? Is there a specific point in the game where this crash happens?

Just a question isn't catalyst for your ATI video card? And if i recall correctly its not for a nvidia card , but you are also using the nvidia physX. Ive only used a nvidia card and thought physX was part of the software for the nvidia card? Is it a separate program? I'm just wondering why your running software for Both of them ?

I don't know very much when i installed portal 2 physx got automatically installed when i made a steam ticket about this. They reply me that i had to update nvidia physX however i uninstalled and installed it and didn't work

Portal 2 does not use or install Physx.

i was having an issue with a crash and a "portal2.exe has stopped working" message. it seems to be working now, i think it may have been a firewall setting change that did it. or try installing on a different computer if you can and see if that helps. see the threads entitled "portal2.exe has stopped working."

well, it seems i am still having issues. i don't know if it has to do with the firewall or not. i am able to play it with no problems on my laptop, and then that seems to somehow "un-stick" the game on my PC. But then the PC crashes again. it's very frustrating.

This is odd... It's been a while since I last played portal 2, but not too long ago I did clear quite of the story, showing the game to a friend and so.

I've never ran into problems with this game, but yesterday it crashed 3 times in like 10 minutes...

Are you running the game or Steam.exe in compatible mode?
You can do this : http://joshmccarty.com/2012/01/turn-...ode-for-steam/

Nope, but I verified the game files just in case, and it downloaded 9 files (700 MBs)

Didn't try if it solved it yet, but that's a bit strange, as the last time I verified the game files everything was ok, and I don't think anything has changed since then...
