Unable to uninstall from Steam

So for a while now the game has been stuck on "Download Paused" and I've been unable to launch it. I tried verifying the files and restarting the steam but it just says it's 100% validated and won't launch.

I tried to uninstall the game but that won't work either; I've even deleted the files on my computer and while it has no files left it still validates 100% and won't even download what's missing.

Any help will be appreciated.

What I would do is find the folder for it in Steamapps/common and delete the folder, delete your ClientRegistry.blob in Programfiles/steam and then restart steam.

No luck I'm afraid; guess I'll have to take this to the Help forum. Thanks for trying though.

FWIW, I make a point of installing steam in a custom location (eg. c:\steam) rather than the default program files location. It seems to remove issues with access to specific directories.

Also try deleting AppUpdateStats.blob found in the same folder as the ClientRegistry.blob file.
