    Thinking about it, you're much more likely to get a good answer to this problem by visiting the Steam website, looking at the troubleshooting FAQ and the forum. They will be familiar with this problem there.

    Oh and turn off your firewall while doing this - but only if you're running a hardware firewall in your broadband router, which most people are nowadays.

    Seems you might be confused with what I meant, I mean go to your properties by right clicking the installer and check these 2 boxes and change the compat mode

    For a while about six months ago I had a similar problem when starting Steam. The dialog box 'updating Steam platform' would pop up on starting Steam and stall on 30-33%. I would just close this dialog box and restart Steam and it would never stall the second time.

    This is unlikely to help you though, as yours seems more persistent. Just thought I'd share.
