  1. Use malwarebytes file assain to delete it.
  2. Just delete that file. Goto Start->Search and type ClientRegistry.blob. It's a garbage file - people delete it all the time to increase ingame performance. Perfectly safe. Consider it a text document that's 5MB. Really, it's just trash - you can google it if you'd like if it gives you reassurance.
  3. @Crazycarpet, try to reboot into safe mode and then try to delete the clientregistry.blob file.

    Usually, you can delete all files except the steam.exe file and your apps directory. Then, you can run the steam.exe file again and it will download and update your client.

    I'm assuming your trying to reinstall Steam due to the blob file being corrupted?
