Cant get steam to start up

I havent opened steam in about a week, and today I tried to open it but it wont start. I can see the process running, it lasts for about a minute then the process disappears and I get no error message or anything.

WTF

I also just noticed that in the task manager, under services, I can see "Steam Client Service" and its stopped. When i try to start it, it says "Cannot find the file specified"


Now I'm really confused.

Don't try to deactivate your anti-virus to open Steam.

Instead just delete everything connected to Steam, run a complete scan on your PC, and then redownload Steam.
