Steam Servers are too busy, Cannot download TF2

Hi.
I wrote a letter to The support team and i got an anwser but it didn't anwsered anything.
So my problem is this:
On Friday I wanted to start Playing TF2 and I got a message: There is problems with the files it will start to re-download the bad files. I said OK and so I waited 30secs and i got this message again and again... I restarted the computer but still got errors. So I uninstalled it and I tryed to Download&Install it but now it says the servers are too busy. I waited 10 mins. Still busy servers. 20mins. Restart PC Delete clientregistry.blob waited 30mins... but Still Busy
I tryed it with other games, like CS:S and Peggle Extreme, And i can download and install them. I can install and download anything expect TF2!
Now It's Sunday at here (Hungary) and the servers are still busy for TF2. The support team anwser didn't help me bit. It said try to switch between the update types, but of course I can't because the game is not installed. I wrote them (Sended a question) again. I hope somone can help me!
Sorry for my bad English but I wrote this quickly and I'm kinda' ANGRY at the moment If you want I can post screenshots. PLZ HELP!

(In a nutshell Can't download TF2 because the servers are busy, but I can download other games like CS:S, 2 days later the servers are still busy)

I don't think it's the NOD because i can download other games as i said before... (CS:S Peggle Extreme)
Btw I can't disable it because my brother thinks if i disable it I will got some kind of a Virus and he don't let me to do any changes... (No no he won't help me he never helps me)
Plus If you read the whole first comment you should know that i got my first problem with the files and it's wanna re download again but it won't i just keep get that ******* error message... I can't play with gmod now... But I won't uninstail it!
GOnna upload that error message

Try deleting all files from you Steam installation folder except Steam.exe and SteamApps folder. Note:If you want to keep your favoritue servers list make a backup copy of file serverbrowser.vdf located in C:\Program Files\Steam\config.
(I assume you got Steam installed in C:\Program Files\Steam)
