Windows 7: Steam error -105

Steam error -105

Hello, since yesterday I am getting this (Steam error -105) error and it says " Unable to connect to server. Server may be offline or you may not be connected to the internet." That error shows for every tab I click (market, profile etc.), and alos I cant even access the steam website or the forums. I can play online but I cannot trade.

Here's what I've tried.
  • Restarting Steam/pc

Ok, so I am at this part, "Then, launch Steam.exe from within the Steam installation folder, and not from a pre-existing shortcut," but when I click Steam.exe it says, " Steam needs to be online to update. Please confirm your network connection settings and try again."

Also, I cannot access any website related to steam.

Try right clicking it and run as administrator. Also make sure your firewall isn't blocking it.

I would uninstall steam, then re install. Make sure you back up your games first. Since you already tried disabling avast with no help it sounds like your steam install is corrupted.

Try another browser, which one are you using now?

Tried it with Firefox and Chrome and also tried in private browsing. I am using Chrome right now.

EDIT: restarting router did not fix.

Have you tried IE? I would suggest to uninstall AVAST completely, try using MSE and see if that helps.
Edit: you said it started yesterday, try a system restore prior to that time
