    Default Steam error code 3 & steam servers too busy

    I've had Steam previously but when installing it on my new computer for the first time I kept getting error code 3.

    I renamed a file slightly which says fixes most common faults but now I cant log in, with it saying that the Steam servers are too busy.

    I've never had any problems before, I'm assuming it's something to do with my new computer.

    Any ideas?

    It appears the error 3 code is to do with Steam being unable to connect to the net, i would check that nothing is blocking Steam, firewall or anti virus or anything like that.

    From Valve:

    We're working on some issues with inter-server communication. We should have a fix within an hour or so. I apologize for the inconvenience.
