Something i tried to fix cloud problem
If you can not start your games.... something i did.
go to settings (downloads + cloud)
untick "Enable steam cloud synchronization for games which support it"
shut down steam and wait for the exit now to clickable and click it.
Go explorer and go to your steam folder
Rename the folder "appcache" to what ever you want
shut down steam
and restart steam
Wait for the pictures of your games load. Could take 1 or more mins.
**AGAIN** untick "Enable steam cloud synchronization for games which support it"
Then you can play games.
if you restart steam you will have to do it all again as well....
DrStinglock tried and worked with this
Disabled the steam cloud.
Disabled steam cloud again.
For MW3 people you keep going up with your XP even after you restart, not sure about other games..

Nope, just did the exact same process, and TF2 is stuck 'preparing.'
EDIT: the OP edited his original post. Unticking it a second time worked, but there is no one to play with since everyone is having this problem and doesn't know about this workaround.

I'll try, thanks. Same issue here.. Once again the update hasn't been updated properly and or steam cloud is having massive problems.
Finally my games are launching fast again! TF2 used to take up over a minute to boot up.
*whelp*. Valve really needs to do something about the bloody cloud issues.
