I own Skyrim, now suddenly it won't load and tells me the game is not able to be played in family view. I have disabled family view in Steam, restarted but still no joy.

There must be a problem with the Steam configuration files linked to your profile. Your best bet is to reinstall Steam.

The games in your library will be detected automatically once you start Steam after the reinstallation process.

    This, but move the appmanifest files from the steamapps folder too so it can avoid the need to "reinstall" (discover existing data).
