Steam not starting!

I searched quite a bit on Google and withing the depths of these very forums, and yet I found naught.

I use Windows 7.
When I open Steam (via quickbar), it shows the 'Connecting Steam account' whatever, whatever message, and then it simply crashes, leaving not even a process behind.

Any clues?

It also should be noted that I deleted that blob file and whatnot.
