We cant even find out what this error means apart from the fact that it seems to be more of a steam error (game was purchased through steam).

He has no antivirus, and he has looked at every single driver we could think of, uninstalled steam (something happened and that broke but should be fixed now I think) and we are at a loss. Anyone have experience with this area 51 of codes? We would like to get this fixed pretty quickly
Steam Error?

Can we see a screeny of it?
