    When I start F1 2013 in my computer it works well until it says ``press start button´´ when I press it the game closes, I know the game is ok because I´ve been playing it since it was released.

    Any ideas?

    Everything in the remote folder.

    All the files which have 'profile' in their file name that are in remote folder, make up your profile. File names with 'ghost' in them are not really needed, they are just ghosts you race against (I hate ghost cars), but they are tiny anyway. You might as well save everything and restore everything when required.

    Remember to follow the procedure.

    Create new profile with exactly the same name as your backup profile, quit the game, then copy the backup files back into the game

    Actually...you don't need the full reinstall in steam. I just reformatted my PC and restored my steamapps folder to fresh 8.1 windows install and F1 2013 didn't start. Just right click in steam, properties...verify integrity of game cache and it checks everything and fixes any issues.
