I just got this same message. Currently validating game cache, hopefully that helps.

Verifying integrity of game cache didn't work. Time to reboot my PC I guess? Already tried restarting Steam; that was no help.

System reboot didn't work for me either. Not a network issue either; I haven't changed any network settings and I'm still able to connect to Steam, chat with steam friends and open CS. Just can't join servers.

Anyone know if this is only a CS:S problem? Anyone experience this with other steam games?

Edit: Found this on the Steam Helps & Tips forum:
http://forums.steampowered.com/forum....php?t=1913862

I guess we're not the only ones.

Exact same problem here. The exact Steam error message that I get is:
"This Steam account does not own this game.
Please login to the correct Steam account"

Already tried to delete ClientRegistry.blob from the Steam folder, have it automatically re-download/update Steam when it reconnected, then re-login using my Steam account info, but it things don't seem to work.

By the way, I was trying to play CS 1.6 (not Source), although I don't think it's a game specific problem.

Hope this is resolved soon,
