    Try deleting the cache and settings folders.

    Like TheGulls said, have you let Steam patch the game or manually patched it yourself from a downloaded source? Always let Steam update the game if you use it.

    Otherwise it sounds like something is having trouble opening a document, possibly a notepad settings file. Have you set any directories to read only? I might be way off but it just sounds like something is trying to open and can't.

    Has FM11 run previously on Steam? Is this a new problem since the patch?

    I've looked about but can't find where to post this question. I digitally downloaded FM2011 from Game and I've installed it and everything but when I try to open it, all I get is a little window called ByteShield that I can't do anything with. What do I do?

    Byteshield is the copy protection that you'll run in to when you download the game from sources other than Steam.

    Have a look at this thread.
