System crash

Hi All,

I’ve been experiencing crashes when launching Stardew valley through steam. It seems to be an intermittent problem as it works fine after the restart and relaunching.

I am running Win 11 pro on the FW16. The windows event viewer listed the two errors below;
a) A timeout was reached (30000 milliseconds) while waiting for the Steam Client Service service to connect.
b) The Steam Client Service service failed to start due to the following error:
The service did not respond to the start or control request in a timely fashion.

Has anybody encountered this and know of a fix?
