    No, if anything, 1.5 is coming to a close....

    Try uninstalling Steam, deleting all of it's registry files, and installing it again.

    Click start->Run, type 'regedit' (without quotes), and hit OK....that's the registry. Look under HKEY_CURRENT_USER -> Software -> Valve -> Steam, or something like that, or maybe it's under HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE, I'm not sure. But it's somewhere in there, delete those reg files, and try again.

    Oh, and before you change any registry stuff, you chould make a backup of it... (File->export, make sure you select 'Entire registry', pick something to save it as, and save it.)
