Just go to start, type in MSCONFIG, open tag startup and active steam
PS then restart computer

That seams unlikely since you should have a directory with steam in the first place:

Its call 'steam client bootstrapper' you need it for windows to activate steam.(the fix)
Just restart computer as well, both work.(this works but may happen again just a window/steam issue)
As above but when tick box/apply/OK/restart computer. Also pinned in front page of Hints and Tips.

I believe you can only use the MSCONFIG fix if you've set Steam as part of the Startup process. Like the OP this fix is unavailable to me. I have 5 programs listed under the Statup tab and only 4 are ticked. ( ticked: Realtek, USB 3.0, CCC and D-link. Unticked: Adobe Reader. )

Tell me if I'm wrong, I'd like to know for sure. (I've only had the error 80 once.)
