For about a week now I have been getting an error when i try to start up THIRD PARTY GAMES. After the first day or so I figured it was some kinda steam error, and disregarded it. But after a week, =(....

When I start up ESF for example it gets ready to load and it says

"SteamStartup(0xf,0x13b60) failed with error 108: The local Steam Service is not running"

And this only happens with third party games, and I have tried running it in offline mode but to no avail =( I've tried uninstalling and re-installing esf, uninstalling adminmod, meta mod.. you name it. D: I just don't know what to dO!
