I have Windows XP, so are there some XP-specific remedies I haven't tried that work? I've tried the Administrative Tools > Services method, to set Steam's client to "Automatic", and any RegEdit or CMD methods are not possible because the admin (which the user I'm on is, makes no sense) controls blocked them, with no way to turn them back on.

Help?

I don't want to waste time. I want to get Steam fixed now.
