    How to determine what is stopping an software from launching


    Hi guys! I hope this is the right thread. I recently had a problem with my CS:GO not launching from Steam.

    I tried uninstalling the game and restoring a backup copy from my laptop (which runs it) to still no avail. I tried reinstalling Steam downloading CS:GO again but it still won't run. I tried disabling Kaspersky incase it is the one blocking it and it still won't run.

    I also tried the tutorials from YouTube (verify file integrity, running DirectX, deleting and redownloading some files) but still no dice.

    It got me thinking, maybe a program is blocking CS:GO from running because my other Steam games would run without a problem.

    Is there a software that can track with app is blocking which?

    It's nice to have a full name the first time acronyms are used in a writing, not being in the gaming world I had to look it up to see what is being asked about.
