Uninstalling Steam WILL delete all games that require it.

Reboot, try to start Steam with admin right and antivirus disabled. If that won't help, delete everything in Steam folder except Steam.exe and /Steamapps/ folder. That will keep your games, you don't need to redownload them. But Steam files will be redownloaded...
