For some reason, Counter-strike Source just won't work. I haven't played in about, 4 weeks, because i just don't have the time these days to play games. But today I do, but CS:S will not work.

When I start Counter-strike Source, I get this window after about 5 seconds after the 'Preparing to launch Counter-Strike Source..' window.



btw, I'm running on Vista.
I never got this error before.
I've tried to re-install Counter-Strike Source 3 times.
I've tried uninstalling from the control panel.
I've tried uninstalling by deleting local content.
I've tried restarting my computer.
I've googled 'hl2.exe has stopped working'.

But I haven't found a solution to my problem.
I am sorry if this has been posted. I've searched on FPSBanana for a thread like this one. But the threads I've looked at never seemed to have a solution.

Sorry again if this has been posted.

Thanks in advance, uNeek.

    I have no idea how to pinpoint the problem in vista really...
    Are the ports for steam and CS:S forwarded correctly?
    Do you have any viruses?
    Do you have a program blocker? Like an anti-virus program or firewall?

    The best thing to do really is format your hard drive.

    2. Yes
    3. No

    Vista runs HL2.exe like crap. I hated playing CSS on Vista, as well as anything else. I'd recommend going to back to XP until a new SP comes out for Vista.

    Bull shit. Me and my friend both use Vista, and it works fine. Although that could be because we both spent a whole day hacking it to get it run OK

    Are the ports for steam and CS:S forwarded correctly?

    Makes no difference... I don't have port forwarding enabled AT ALL and it works fine for me

    Well... Someone has already bumped this so I'll just ask for the heck of it.
    How do I stop hammer from crashing all the time?
    I'm using Windows 7 (64-Bits), should I run it in competability mode or something..? :P
