Steam Client Problem

I keep getting a prompt from steam - saying a new updated version of Steam Client dated July 17th is ready, it then asks me to restart steam to update, I do this but it still always highlights me that the same July 17th update is required.

Any ideas how to over come this problem, I have checked on these forums and cannot find a answer.

Regards

Try this...

Start Steam by navigating to wherever you have it installed and right clicking Steam.exe, then choosing "Run as Administrator"

Do you have it in the default location of C:\Program Files (x86) ?

I am already running Steam.exe as a administrator and Steam is on the D: Drive.

Still getting the July 17th prompt from steam client.

Hi, try removing the `run as administrator` option. Depending on the system it can cause problems if you force it on.

John, do you mean you're using "Run as.....", have set Steam.exe (via it's properties) to require Admin rights, or merely that your user account is a member of the Administrators group?

If I right click on the Steam deck top icon and go to advance options it shows "Run as Admin", if I right click on the Steam.exe, this takes me to a dialog box and I click on "Security" and I have these options.
The following options have these accesses :-

Authenticated users - modify, read and execute, read and write.
System - Full control
Administration(John-PC\Administrators) - Full control
Users(john-PC\users) - read and execute, read and write.

I do not touch any of these settings.
