You have to send an email to steam support explaining your situation and ask for your username/password. It takes a couple days for them to get back to you, but they will send you your info (they did for me).

I suspect they have to do this very often...

Does this work for forgotten *Secret Question*? I have my CDKey( it was a bundle download though) and my account name but I cant remember the way I spelled my Secret Question.

I emailed Steam and I keep getting Assistance Denied emails because my email doesnt match my old one, even though Im using the exact same account and pc.....

Can you include your old email address in the email and say that you lost the account information associated with that email. Include what you know, like tell them my username is XXX but I cant remember my password, or vice versa.

You say you got a CD-key with your download package?
