I was having the same problem to. Delete the ClientRegistry.blob file and the AppUpdateStats.blob file and restart steam and it should work. Make sure you're running steam as an admin also. If you don't delete the appupdatestatus file steam won't start.

Try deleting the files again, then restart your PC before trying to run steam again.

I am able to log in now but my friends list shows 0 friends online although I had them verify that they are online and they can see each other. Any fix for this?

I restarted after I deleted the files, and it still did not work. However, running as administrator has fixed the problem. Strange. Thanks!

Are you running steam as an admin?
