I have done all the troubleshooting, and I can assure you the only thing that has changed was that I used steam in Ubuntu through Wine. Stupidly, I did not follow the How-To on the Wiki and instead mounted the drive where my original steam files were and ran them through Wine.  Since this problem has been happening, I have re-tried and am still able to log into Steam from Ubuntu (just now Windows), so I am guessing this is where I went wrong and the problem is stemming from.

Making steam run on Windows is off-topic here.
What I would do is uninstall steam, delete the steam folder then reinstall it.
