    Hey guys, so it looks like Terraria has decided to be an idiot because every time I try to open Terraria, an error just pops up asking me to launch the game from my Steam client. Before you guys rant, no, I did not pirate it. I bought the game on it's release (sometime in May, I forgot, it's been half a year) and it's worked perfectly until now. I've tried verifying the integrity of game cache, but still no success. Anyone have any ideas? Thank you. ;)

    Delete all local content, then verify. Wait for it to re-download. Then defrag the game files. If that doesn't work, restart your computer, and if that doesn't work, delete and reinstall the game.

    Right-click your taskbar and select task manager, at least if you use Vista.
    Or just try Ctr-Alt-Del, should do the trick.
