Hello Lloyd

This error is well known on several OS, not just Windows 7. I assume it came up right after Steam updated. The solution here is pretty easy. First of all Uninstall steam from Control Panel -> Uninstall a program. After you reinstall Steam check to see if the error still shows. Sometimes this may be a solution.

If you are still encountering this problem, go to C:Program Files(x86)Steam and locate ClientRegistry.blob. Delete the file, restart your PC and your Steam will work just fine.

I hope you will find this information useful.
