Game Files Constantly Fail To Validate On Steam

Question

hoo

Whenever I try to play Skullgirls or Star Wars Battlefront 2 on Steam, they won't open. It says that I'm in game for about 10 seconds, then I just go back to online. If I validate the game files for Skullgirls, one file fails to validate, and when I do the same to Star Wars, 12-ish files fail to validate as well. I have to validate the files whenever I want to play a game, and I'm getting pretty tired of it as it takes about five minutes to do so. Is there any way to fix this?

Oh yeah, and I have uninstalled Skullgirls and re-installed and that didn't fix anything. I'd imagine that wouldn't help Star Wars, either.

Actually, I found out what was going wrong. Turns out that half my PC with infected with malware and such because I was an idiot and decided not to get an Antivirus do to RAM issues. The files that failed to validate were infected.

Thanks Avast, now I can play video games.

Have you tried going into launch options and running in safe mode? Code is " -safe "

 

My usual troubleshooting solution is 

1.) Running in safe mode.

2). Verify the Game Cache

3.) Delete Local Game Content/Manual Local File Delete and Reinstall

I once had this problem. One fix I know of is right clicking on the Steam.exe, then click on 'Run As Administrator', then trying to validate and play the games that aren't working.
