I clicked a game in client I wanted to download and instead of games name it said something like %£!$&* is preparing to download , I stopped it and now I cant launch the client after clicking on its short cut , it just says "my name" is contacting server and then it just hangs

If you run system restore frequently, maybe restore to a time before the problem.

Uninstall and reinstall Steam. Move the folder mentioned here so that you can copy it back in place and not have to redownload all your games.

thanks to both of you for feedback , all ok now , I thought something bad had happened because when steam was "hanging" I did not get the usual …. failed to connect to sever message
