Steam in Windows 7

Steam in Windows 7

After I install Steam it gives me an error and say "steam.exe has been deleted but it's still there", then when repairing it says that I don't have permission to access steam.exe/steamtmp.exe

"Is this error when you try to run it?

Go into properties, compatibility, check Run as Administrator. If that doesn't work, set it to XP SP3 compatibility mode.

Steam is working on 7 fine for me, but I've had to do this with several apps."

In steam folder remove everything but steam.exe and steamapps folder then run steam.exe file, if it doesn't help or you have no games installed try to completely remove steam directory and reinstall it from scratch.
