Steam keeps updating

Navigate to your Steam - Repair Folder Sometimes files on hard-disks and other storage devices become corrupted because of bad hardware, software crashes, power surges etc.

Steam can verify the correctness over installed game files and fix them if necessary.

It's always a good first step to make sure that you restart Steam as well as your computer.

Restarting the computer flushes all kinds of system states and caches, while resetting other programs and releasing locks on files and other resources.

Its been like this for a couple of hours now, and I was wondering if anyone was having the same problem?

As for the things I have tried: Deleted the installing game, tried with Loadout, DOTA 2, Torchlight 2, and Dark Souls 2, Deleted all download files for the downloading game in the Steam folder, and ran steam://flushconfig after windows r.

For Windows: Start → search "update" → run "Check for Updates" For Mac: drivers cannot be updated separately; only the operating system can be updated.These folders need to be writable by all users in order to update properly.Sometimes these user permissions break and need to be refreshed.Note: If you cannot locate the file please stop your current download and open the launcher options menu, ensure is enabled.

The file will be generated the next time your download completes or fails.
