Is steam down for anyone right now?

I just got an error booting up steam telling me to try again later, anyone'/???

False alarm, problem fixed, panic averted.

Steam goes down at least once a day. Just try again in a few minutes.

Mine's fucked, I keep getting: 
Steam.exe (main exception): ERROR: delete of Steam.exe failed, Win32 Error 5 "Access is denied." 
Tried repairing, reinstalling and restarting, deleting and renaming the .exe files as recommended  here -, I'm the one and only person on this PC, I have full admin rights, I have up to date anti-virus and anti-malware software, nothing has changed on the software side of things from yesterday. What the shitting balls is going on? I was playing Just Cause 2 about 24 hours ago...JUST fine...

If I do this: 
"First delete the files in the steam folder EXCEPT the folders and steam.exe"
I get this: 
Steam.exe (main exception): ERROR: copying SteamNew.exe to Steam.exe failed, Win32 Error 32 "The process cannot access the file because it is being used by another process."

Got it working now, left it a while and just ran the Steam.exe from the program folder rather than my taskbar shortcut.
