yeah can you explain it a little better (sorry really) but where am i suppose to hit start and run like start in general on the pc and if that where am i suppose to run and all. sorry but i kinda can't live without steam and i suck at complicated PC stuff
With windows 7/vista just hit the start button/orb/start menu and type the word "run" in and hit enter.

Count me among those who say thank you! What kind of stupid design is this from microsoft - just forcing some crap on people without giving them a real chance to do anything about it. *grrrr*
But thanks :)
Thanks for that
i think the problem started for me because i had to run a steam game as administrator but its good to know there is a easy fix for it
Not in my regedit >_<
Im having this compatibility problem too.
However! I can't find steam in my rededit >_<
Im running Win 7 Home Edition x64
I looked everywhere for either Valve or Steam but couldn't find it anywhere.
STILL steam says its running in compatibility mode...
Can anyone help me? :o
I recently downloaded fabel 3 through steam and when i try to play it before it loads a message pops up that says improper shutdown detected then the game starts up gets all the way to the main menu then when i thry to play it it trys to load but as it loads the screen goes black and it goes back to windows. I have treid reinstaling several times (fabel and steam) i have gone through every steam troubleshoot list, downloaded every driver and update they told me. i have posted on the steam forums and lionhead forums and nobody has been able to help. i tried to change the compatibility setings by folowing this forum but it hasent changed any thing. I am not great with things of this nature so if you could help it would be very apriciated.
So whenever I get to step 3 which is looking for an entry with a path to steam.exe I get stuck. Only 3 entries come up, 2 of which are for bit torrent and the other is default.. Not sure if I was in the right place looking or if I had to do something that I didn't do. Thanks.
Yea... This is one of those questions that you would see 40 threads about, but nobody would have the answer. And here it was already solved. ^^ /registered
Thank you for taking the time to post this. I see it's from a while ago but it still works on Windows 7 32bit, just in case anyone was wondering.

Omg thank you so very much! I was about to go crazy D:
But then, BINGO :D!!
Thanks a lot!! This solved my problem in just a few clicks!
