Whenever I launch GTA-IV (via Steam), I'm prompted to "log in to Social Club". I'm not interested in multiplayer or video uploading features, at least at the moment; how can I stop this window from appearing every time I try to launch the game?

Good question. I don't think you can (haven't found a solution). –  jv42 May 31 '11 at 10:27

It is not possible to get rid of that screen via steam. Game will check if you have a working net connection, everytime it starts via steam. So, it will ask for you to log in to social club everytime. If you start game, without an internet connection, it should not ask for the same.

to run a steam game without internet connection, you have to switch to steam's offline mode while connected to the internet (and after having run the game at least once online) –  Zommuter Jun 1 '11 at 5:04

@Tobias - so you have to deal with it once instead of indefinitely. If it works, It's still better than the alternative (of not changing anything at all). –  Raven Dreamer Jun 1 '11 at 5:13
    
@Raven though I think the social club login also has a remember me option –  Zommuter Jun 1 '11 at 5:22
