Manually delete the folder, and then redownload from steam.

Are you saying steam is downloading TTW?

Turn off cloud for New Vegas, then delete manually the new vegas folder (not the one in my documents, the one in steamapps/common)

If you used a mod manager to install TTW, make sure you uninstall it using that mod manager first too.

Yeah, Steam doesn't have the TTW files. Only thing I can think about is mod manager install or not deleting the FNV game folder (if installed directly into the game folder).
I guess in last resort, one could search their computer for taleoftwowastelands.esm and see if they can find that file. If they can, then they need to see where the file is and delete it and any other TTW related file in the same directory. :shock:
