    HELP my Steam won't start

    Guys when I try to start Steam, TF2 or L4D I get this message
    [attachment=0:3uxk8t7w]WTH.jpg[/attachment:3uxk8t7w]

    How can I fix this so I'll be able to play again??
    Now I'm just going to reboot my pc so I hope it's fixed after that...

    Obviously, you need to lengthen your blob.

    As annoying as suggestions like this usually are, your best bet is to reinstall Steam, assuming deleting ClientRegistry.blob (which fyi just stores details of installed games and their update status so Steam doesn't have to scan them every time it starts) doesn't help.

    So firstly I should delete clientregistry.blob and if it still isn't working than I have to reinstall steam?

    Just delete or if possible move it to another folder incase something messes up. Read my links.. :) You might even have to format the PC in worst case according to my links.
