    When you say the computer "restarts" is it doing this automatically, or is it asking you to restart.

    Is this the same auto-restarts you mention in THIS thread?

    no its automatic, doesnt ask me for anything just restarts and then if i try to run steam again after it restarts it tells me that its encountered an error and needs to close.... ive uninstalled and reinstaled steam and still the same problem

    When you uninstall, do you go to Program Files and physically delete the Steam directory before you reinstall? You could have a corrupt file in there that's not being deleted on uninstall.
