# Steam Client Error -130: Unknown Error, could not connect to the page

steamtechnical-issues

Okay, this happened completely all of a sudden. This morning, I was getting the "-130" error message even more than normal. That's the one that says

Unknown Error, could not connect to the page


I was also unable to update any of my games. I tried:

• restarting my computer and internet multiple times
• I then decided to completely uninstall Steam, not just everything excluding the /SteamApps folder, there was no trace of steam on my computer afterwards.

The installation of Steam completed, but now that it's time for steam to do the "Checking for updates" stuff that the Steam installer itself does. Every time I try to finish the download, I get an error message that says

Steam needs to be online to continue. Please confirm your network connection and try again


My internet is completely fine. I can even access steam by using my internet browser, I can get to Google, Facebook, Youtube, so my internet is not a problem. I've closed, then opened my ports, disabled my firewall, disabled my anti-virus.

Also, if this helps, I tried doing a security scan with McAfee, which, apparently requires me to be connected to the internet, and it couldn't get to the internet either.
At the time, I was also still on Facebook, and Google, etc.
