I'm guessing this is an update problem on nov 19 which are affecting
most of the servers.

See if you can join unsecured servers.

Remove whatever plugin(s) you're running and make sure -insecure isn't in your startup options.

rightclick in games library on left 4 dead 2 >properties >set launch options
there you can write such things

but it makes no difference if there is "-insecure" in or not
i tried both..

since the update (19.11.10) i get the same error:

CONNECTION BLOCKED
Please remove any plug-ins before attempting to connect to a vac secured server.

i uninstalled in games library and deleted the whole l4d2 folder on my computer and reinstalled the game; the error is there anyway.

i googeled for hours but found nothing to fix it

Also check if anything of your environment could interfere with Steam:
1. Close all background programs. Cleanup your environment.
2. Read this article: https://support.steampowered.com/kb_...9828-SFLZ-9289

I had this problem for some time ago. Not sure how it disappear now.

Okies
I did all the way long from cleaning actually all services beside Microsoft to reconfiguring router to default config.
Currently dling l4d 2 on my laptop so I can compare two machines on same connection type.

I'm pretty sure something is messed up in file structure of l4d 2.

If someone finds solution let us know plx :-)

OK here are some more information
Even if I choose not to choose to official server Error appears.
Even if I launch dedicated UN-secured LOCAL server error appears.
LOGIC ?
