Since the recent update, last Friday, I have had many problems. My current one is that I do get into a game but after a while (usually at change of map or if I try to go to another server) I get chucked out to the desktop with 75% of the screen being black. CSS says it is running on the task bar but it is very difficult to end task or kill off. When I do manage to get the end task to work everything seems normal again with Steam running in the corner tray. Please help as this is happening all the time now. PS The problem where the main screen appears with no options and then hangs causing a reboot only is down to your Firewall. You must re-add HL2.exe

    I tried reinstalling everything graphics, sound, directx etc but what did it was one of the following 2:

    In CS Options, Audio. Setting to 2 speakers

    Removing the offending dll from the c:\prog files\valve....dll directory

    Oh yeah, some peeps have been able to continue after copying all the .dll files in the dll folder to the \counter-strike source directory. Good luck.

    blah,
    run msconfig.exe and disable anything that uses rundll32 and any auto-start programs that go with your video card. i know they can be cool sometimes, but they always have prblems. no manufacturer uses rundll32 they way its supposed to be used, none of them.

    Dont have any rundll32's running. I still have the problem but it is intermittant. If I get thrown out it is just as the graphics are about to appear for the start of a game.

    I think the fix is to rename the directory with your email address under C:\program files\valve etc

    Once you run CS a new folder will be created.

    I copied all my maps and my custom config.cfg file back over once the new directory had been created.
