Hmmm, did you download steam from the website or a disk?

Download the newest installer from the steam website and run it as an administrator, if the problem continues then there is another program causing the issue run a malware program and antivirus to make sure your system is clean and also run the windows update.
and can you fill out your system specs in your UserCP so we can help you more thank you and welcome to SF.
