Tf2 and validating

I have this behavior on my Dad's old corrupt Windows XP computer (programs close without warning etc).

Starting from today every time I start it up, it validates the steam cache files. One time I somehow managed to launch it, then my computer crashed because it was running to much stuff and now I can't get back on at all.I'm curious as to what exactly the verify option does.I know on some other games I have tried it on, steam will end up downloading some files, but apparently not all files are included in this.If something goes whacky with your game, this sometimes fixes it.Steam support suggested it once and it got me out of a problem I had, so I try it again on occasion.
