    Whenever I try to sign into steam it doesn't sign in, it just stays there. I put an incorrect password and it says it's incorrect though if I put my proper password it won't log in?!

    This is what I see:

    Wonder why does steam require us to do this ClientRegistry blob deletion thing every now and then.. and the mandatory download client update first before using..

    I think it holds the application settings and profile, which has a habit of going bad. I've not had to delete this file in quite some time now I'm glad to say. This install of Windows 7 I have now is very stable and the installed apps rarely screw up.
