Steam Error: “Fatal Error: Failed to load Platform Modules” Fix

Recently Started Steam on my gaming machine and was greeted by a “Fatal Error: Failed to load Platform Modules”.  I first checked out Steam’s official issue page regarding the issue: http://supportwiki.steampowered.com/wiki/Steam_Error:_Fatal_Error:_Failed_to_load_platform_modules but didn’t seem like much help because the registry entry they requested changing was already correct.  After a little searching around I found that all that was needed was to remove “Steam.dll” in C:\Program Files\Steam”.  Removal of this file forced Steam to update on next startup.  This resolved any issues I was having.  Hopefully this is helpful for others having the issue.
