There are so many things we can try now so I will start with the obvious:

1:Restart PC.
2:Restart Steam.
3:Force Steam to remake ClientRegistry.blob.

quote Steam
Windows XP/Vista/7

Completely exit from the Steam client.
Go to C:\Program Files\Steam (or the Steam directory that was specified during installation).
Locate ClientRegistry.blob and rename this file to ClientRegistryOld.blob.
Restart Steam to allow the file to be recreated.
Test the issue once more.

Mac OSX

Completely exit from the Steam client.
Go to /Users/[Username]/Library/Application Support/Steam
Locate ClientRegistry.blob and rename this file to ClientRegistryOld.blob.
Restart Steam to allow the file to be recreated.
Test the issue once more.
Edit: Also are your computer specs up to standard ? I've seen people with this problem where it works on one PC but not the other, that was back in 09 though iirc
