Steam Startup failed with error 0x0034E608

Asked By 15 points N/A Posted on -

Hi there,

When I want to launch GMod 13 Beta this error appears. I have rebooted the PC to delete to reset the cache memory and it doesn’t seem to work. I have verified the registry with a software and it works OK. Can anyone please help me to solve this? What is with this error message? Thank you!
