Today I restarted steam and it now doesn't start up anymore. Downloaded steaminstall straight from steampowered.com, installed, still doesn't work. What can I do now, it works just yesterday.

My steam takes like 5 minuites to come up. i have no idea why it does this, it just takes a very long time from when i click the icon, to come up.

Open the task manager and make sure all process's of steam.exe are not running.

Navigate to your steam folder(eg. C:\\Valve\\Steam) and look for the ClientRegistry.blob temp file and delete it, then run steam again

This should help and ask for your login infomation again.

I have this problem all the time and this always fixes it


Hope this helps
