Steam problems

Right, I exit steam because I'm about to reboot the machine. I then goto reboot and windows tells me the damn thing is still running and I have to either see if it ends or close it:

I have to close it because it wont fuck off and then the PC reboots, once I've loaded windows up again and Steam goes to load up, this happens:

What the Hell is this?

If I reconnect to the net and run Steam then I can get on HL2 again fine and if I disconnect I can play it offline too, but whenever I now reboot it doesn't want to know, I mean it's supposed to keep you logged in if you choose the 'remember my password' on the login screen and it does so long as you run it from the net first.. but you're not supposed to need to connect up everytime you want to run the damn thing!

Grrr, why can't it just use a simple executable instead of going through Steam all the time?! Meh.

Problems again now with steam?

remove clientrigestry.blob in your steam directory and login to steam if it doesnt help i dont know.

:?

That just told me it couldn't run the program whilst offline.

Reinstalled it, made no difference. I'll have to reinstall the whole thing again by the looks of it unless anyone knows what the Hell is up..

hi d3 i searched google and the very first result was the answer so you should look harder next time.

The solution is simple - simply browse to your Steam folder (usually c:\program files\steam) and delete the file "ClientRegistry.blob". Restart Steam and it should work fine.

Yes, I searched for the error and found nothing that related to offline play..

Already been suggested by Nexus if you care to look, didn't work at all. It would work if I was online but not offline, I don't wish to have the net on when playing a single-player game.. pointless.

Different computer, me and dad share the internet via the usb hub, so when he wants it it's switched over here and if I wanted it, it goes upstairs to my games pc. Therefore I can't keep the net on all the time upstairs and therefore can't run steam offline. I'm sure you're meant to be able to run it offline with the red line through the steam icon? I have been able to run it offline but only if I've logged in online beforehand and then disconnected.. ugh..
