SteamStartup failed, none of the solutions I've read work
Every time I try to launch TF2, I end up with a popup that states "SteamStartup failed with error 1: The registry is in use by another process, timeout expired.
I have verified the cache, completely reinstalled TF2 and deleted my Steam folder (except the steamapps folder & steam.exe), solutions that I've found here and online, and none of them working. Any help would be appreciated

Install the new steam beta update that worked for me.
go to Steam, settings, beta participation, change then steam beta update.

I also have this issue with tf2, haven't tried other games. So far, running verify integrity ( right click game name, click properties, local files, verify integrity) seems to work. but it's a pain to have to do every time. but it works.
