It was trojaned into Half Life 2, to play the game I had to allow Valve to install their fucking shop on my laptop which sent me pop-up ads constantly. My laptop wasn't that flash, so when ads popped up while trying to play Half-Life 2 it would crash. I eventually figured out I could make their piece of shit malware stop doing that but I wound up deleting it all and throwing the worthless disc in the bin. Only PC game I've played since 2004 is Civilisation 4 and a number of "pre-Steam/DRM" titles I had on disc.
Now that console are going to ape Steam it's probably worth going back to PC because at least Valve will now have their regime sorted out.
