If you are receiving the error - " steam.exe (main exception): CMultiFieldBlob(pSerialized): Partial field header at end of record " then you came to right place where you will find the problem solving.

So do this:

Method 2 ( Thanks to Joelhão ):
Exit Steam
- Download setup of steam ( SteamInstall.msi from http://store.steampowered.com/about/ )
- Run setup
- Choose Repair from setup.
- Finish
- Done!

Method 1:
- Exit Steam
- Delete your clientregistry.blob file ( in your steam folder C:/program files/steam/ )
- Reboot your machine ( Personal Computer )
- Log back into Steam and let the file recreate itself.
- Done!

Happy playing!
