Why is MSN messager runing in the background? Restart the machine and make sure that nothing is running in the background when you install Steam. If this error message appears again, post and we'll try something different. Also have you tried going to the Steam site and searching their knowledge base? If not here's the link

Did you try the Steam knowledge base? Have a look there and then post back.
EDIT - nm I've had a look for you and didn't find anything exactly relating to your problem but there were some answers. Take a look at these and see if any of them help. Especially the one that says programs which conflict with CS:S.

If non of them help try searching for something different. I searched for CS:S/error messages/error during installation
