Open internet explorer, clear all cookies from there. That should do it.

Steam stores its own cache independent of chrome, ie, etc.

Exiting Steam should clear these files. If it doesn't, you will need to manually delete the folder named 'overlayhtmlcache'

Default location:

C: > program files > steam > config > overlayhtmlcache
