Unable to start Steam Engine

Today, I decided to start up Steam again. I haven't played any games for a while, so I figured that Steam probably needs updating. But after it updated, it gave me the following error message:

Steam.exe (main exception): Unable to start Steam Engine: *SteamStartEngine(0x12eba4) failed with error 1: The registry is in use by another process, timeout expired.

I started to freak out. I have a lot of games on the Steam engine. I loaded it up again. It loads, but it is extremely slow. It stopped responding at times. Finally, after 10 minutes, it finally loaded completely.
