Red face Steam won't install. Tried everything

Hi

Tried installing steam on my computer but all i get is errors. It used to be on there but it was taken off. When i click to install it says "error 1325 SteamApps is not a valid path name". I have tried the regedit etc but it won't allow me to go in their. Tried everything i can think of and nothing helps. Please, please help me. On another note even if I try and open some of my games on the hard drive it comes up with another error. Very strange.

Try following the instructions in this article. What happens exactly when you try and access regedit?

Cleanly reinstalling Steam

When i try regedit it says something like: drive not accessible! and comes up with an error. Which completely baffled me.

I have tried opening the windows cleaner but it says I can't access it. If my computer is in safe mode would this help. Can I connect to the internet in safe mode?

I guess failing that I could try and format my hard drive and re install windows vista.
