Gameinfo.txt does not exist in subdirectory hl2

A few days ago, I decided I wanted to become premium and buy something from the shop. It got stuck at "checking out", and no amount of forum scouring helped. So, I contacted Steam support and they, as unhelpful as ever, told me to uninstall and reinstall Steam. So, I copied my tf2 files to desktop so I wouldn't have to download TF2 again, and followed the instructions and reinstalled Steam. Then, I went to play TF2 and it couldn't launch it, which was an old problem I had previously fixed by playing TF2 in windows XP compatibility mode.It didn't help this time. I decided to reinstall TF2 anyway, so I did. Now, I still can't launch it, and when I try to launch it directly from the game files in Computer, I get the error message in the title. I have not downloaded any custom maps or modded in any way. Help?

By the way, it baffles me that unistalling and reinstalling the game doesn't help.
EDIT: I disabled XP compatability and stopped running as administrator. Then the error message changed to "SteamStartup() failed: SteamStartup(0xf,0x0027DDC0) failed with error1: failed to take master pipe connection lock".
What the hell?
