Default Steam Problem

I'm trying to install steam. Whenever I do, at 27% done, it says "You can only run 1 copy of steam at a time". Although it's the only one I'm running. I tried deleting and reinstalling, but no good. Please help me.

That happens a lot because Steam sucks. Try restarting your computer. That usually works for me.
