If it's not there, then Steam isn't open.

When/If you find Steam, right click and exit.

Failing that, restart your computer.

If Your Steam Window Is Up, Click File, Click Exit.
Then Find your Steam Shortcut and use it. That should of restarted it. If that did not work, or you already get a Updating Steam Window that doesnt look like its moving, Restart your computer and Try Step 2 again.

Go into your Program Files directory, and find Valve / Steam, and run the executable from there.

Do you have steam and Half-Life (or Half-Life 2) installed?

lol i dont know why this dude is acting like this...
1) if you got Half-Life2 you got a steam account and that means you have steam progrem installed in your PC.
if you dont then go to here:http://www.steampowered.com/v/index.php?area=getsteamnow&cc=IL click on "free download" and let it download.
after its over install it.
2) if your messing around then thats just lame

rock on
