Anyone else have this problem?

I just started Steam, it went through a little update and now it's saying "Fatal Error: Failed to Load Platform modules"

Anyone else getting this?

I googled it, did a registry search to change the "language" entry and it wasn't there, I also ended the service in the task manager, and that didn't fix it.

Edit:
The fix,
1. Ensure that Steam is not running (close any error dialog windows)
2. Go to the Start button and select Run...
3. Enter regedit and press OK
4. Navigate to the HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Valve\Steam registry folder
5. Locate and double-click the Language registry key
6. Enter english in the Value data field and click OK
7. Start Steam

Yeah, that happened to me - I think what I did was delete the Steam registry entries after uninstalling the client, then reinstalled.

Ok, here's is what I did, went to the wrong place in the registry the first time, hence I couldn't find it. :)

1. Ensure that Steam is not running (close any error dialog windows)
2. Go to the Start button and select Run...
3. Enter regedit and press OK
4. Navigate to the HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Valve\Steam registry folder

7. Start Steam

It's there for me in Win 7 Ultimate x64.

Should be in the Steam folder in the registry, exactly where the OP says it should be.

What OS you using?
