STEAM will not install. Fatal Error 1324 ; The folder path 'Program Files (x86) contains an invalid character. How do you fix this ?

I can not play any of my games, because STEAM refuses to install...I have used their Web Site and my discs...the results are identical...the same Fatal Error pops up..

 

From the other thread: http://answers.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/forum/windows_7-gaming/error-1324-when-installing-steam/d9515071-2fc1-405c-875a-8fd6bca91930

Title: ERROR 1324 when installing STEAM

I have attempted to install STEAM via the WEB and game discs (Games include Civilization V, Napoleon --Total War & EMPIER--Total War)

Program runs until the STEAM INSTALLATION WIZARD appears...immediately I recieved an ERROR 1324 . The fold path 'Program Files (x86) contains an invalid character. It does not state which file or what character is invalid. I have tried several registry cleaners...no luck. There is no folder anywhere on the computer for Valve or STEAM....

  I have disable the security & firewalls and still get the same results....The Steam Installer will not function... Help ?
