Did you start up steam before attempting to start up TF2? Im not sure how well the games handle having to start up steam from their icon.

Try launching TF2 from within steam and see if that works.

go to control panel, programs, uninstall/change a program, find steam, uninstall steam, go to google.com, search for steam, install steam. Assuming you have vista/windows7
