PC geniuses come!!

Help me mens)) It started a few days ago even before Operation Riptide came out. Whenever I start CS the game behaves like it was its first time launch which means installing DirectX and Visual C++ Redistributable Packages. I remember one thing, however. When my PC was idle it downloaded "Steamworks Common Redistributable" by itself on steam. Since that time I get this first time launch pop ups. The game works fine, its just annoying to wait a couple of seconds for these drivers to install. I tried deleting everything fromn directx_installer except for a couple of files. Basically all archives were deleted. I also deleted installscript.vdf from the game folder. It helps, but once Steam is rebooted the problem reappears. I tried to verify game files as well and uninstalled "Steamworks Common Redistributable" from the list but they reappear/are downloaded again. Please, help. You are my only hope.

Are you saying the DX Setup, Visual C++, and Steamworks Runtimes download everytime you start-up the game? I couldnt understand the problem that well

They only need to be downloaded once. I havent seen that problem before, very odd

Is there an actual issue? If it only takes a few seconds surely you can't just check something else while you launch it?

I can cope with that. Nevertheless I would like to fix it.

i used to have this problem but with some other game , i think it has got to do with those "Steamworks Common Redistributable" thingy cause i used to get that as a download every now and then. It fixed itself after some time.
