This is a very generic error that means Steam was unable to start, so it will show up for many reasons. As you might have seen from the Windows posts people often reinstall Steam entirely, and you can try that. Other than that, trying to narrow down what has changed since Steam worked last is the best way to try and pinpoint what is causing the problem.
