    Well, try deinstalling l4d tools,
    make sure you make backups from your working files(just in case)
    after deinstalling, check if the bin folder is still there.
    If so, delete it and then reinstall the SDK again.
    (bin folder is in "common/left 4 dead")

    delete the bin folder in your l4d root then.
    Or the delete registry.blob trick.
    And then re-install again?

    Some of these problem can also happen if you backed up all your files and then added them to your steam folder, did you do that?

    Hammers quite the resource hog, what else are you running? check process explorer for any programs taking up all the resources/CPU power.

    I do realize this fact , but hammer was running without any stops or freezes before , even with 30 realtime 3d rendered porn movies on alt-tab* , so i think resources are not the source

    *this is fake , in fact i am NOT rendering 3d porn

    Mkay , just for people who might encounter same problem

    i'd switched graphic card to GTX 260 (+ lots of other codenames from gainward) , and installed new graphic drivers , one or both things fixed that hammer(head)

    I don't know is it me or everyone but i cannot make new thread (blank page loads when i'm trying to) , so i'm going to post my new problem here

    I downloaded THIS custom survivor pack on screenshots it works fine , but after installing it on my l4d all maps between NM are lagged to 0.1FPS and 10FPS on NM , plus all models are invisible and louis dies on the very beginning , so i do not know what to do , i tryied editing pak01dir and reducing custom models quantity , game works fine when there's one custom survivor , if i add any more than one the game gets F*d up...

    any1 had such as problem? , possible fix method?
