WTF, Steam?
Well, I go to play the game, but then it says "SteamStartup() failed: SteamStartup(0xf,0x003DE16C) failed with error 1: The registry is in use by another process, timeout expired"

WTF, Steam? Seriously?

I think Garry is too busy ♥♥♥♥ing Kinect up the ♥♥♥ to actually take note of THIS ♥♥♥♥ING ERROR.

Bug or a missing file

Restart steam its a bug you created a game or a program is using your registry

Maybe a virus?

there are viruses that cannot be detected

If you think your safe

You either screwed up your Garry's Mod Or a program is interfering

Check for recently installed applications and test them in safemode etc.

If you think that is not interfering

Then all thats left is that you screwed it up by changing a setting installing a ♥♥♥♥ty addon
(most of the addons on the workshop don't work and override everything )

It's more of a Steam bug. I've got this with CS:S, HL2, etc..
Wish this was fixed

I had this problem myself.

Open up your system config app (Start>Run>msconfig)
Hit selective startup,
Open services,
Click hide all microsoft services,
Click disable all,
Save settings,
Restart computer,
Play game.
