Steam overlay not working in game

I'm having problems using the steam overlay feature in game. Games where it worked before it no longer works. This has become rather annoying with people messaging me and product codes I need to type in.

The "Enable steam community in-game" option is checked. Ive looked around and cant find a solution to this particular problem (restarting steam, my computer, and running as administrator doesn't work)

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

That process isn't there for me.
I could have been playing a game that doesn't have it enabled (splinter cell chaos theory) however it also doesn't work for games like Half Life 2.

Edit: Just played half life 2 and the process still isn't there.

I have the same sort of problem, except sometimes when I'm using the web browser, the overlay stops working, not appearing and the messages in the corner stop appearing. However, if I'm on youtube when it crashes,the video still plays in the background but the Shift+Tab combination doesn't open it. Anybody have any ideas?
