I upgraded my nephew's motherboard and cpu, did a fresh install of windows 7 and now steam wont install.
After downloading steam, and trying to install, it stops after 99% of updating and shows this:

"Steam needs to be online to update. Please confirm your network connection and try again."


Im sure the router ports are open since this is the same computer he used before, I just upgraded a few parts.

Steps I tried:

1. Turning off anti virus
2. Tried doing this but I cannot find steam.dll anywhere, its probably not included in a fresh install http://steamcommunity.com/discussions/forum/1/864971765600349973/




Specs:
Windows 7 Ultimate 64bit
Intel E5800 3.2 Ghz dualcore
ECS G41T-R3 v1.0
