Well... I was playing Counter Strike Source last night... no problem. Today... I get off work, go to join my favorite server... whats this? After 1 second of being joined... some error pops up (can't see what it says though because as soon as I manage to get back to desktop it isn't shown anymore). I haven't found any solution to any of this... I have tried to join various servers, even created my own... same problem. This is ridiculous.

First question that came to mind... Do you legally own the game?

Yes... I own the game.

And... screenshot of what? All that happens is my game freezes and I get the windows BEEP noise... after hitting enter a few times it goes back to desktop and no error is present... one time I saw the error but it went off the screen before I could even see what it said. When the crash happens CTRL ALT DEL does nothing... only way to get back to the desktop is to press enter...

maby you should try reinstalling steam (cheers)

Reinstall Steam + HL2, just to make sure.

hmm, maybe try downloading a screen capture program that takes screens of the current window. Then when the message pops up (although it's hidden it would be the current window) take a screenshot. Don't know if that will work, but it might...

try recording a video of it with fraps, then play back the video and have a look.

Ah here's an idea to see the message. Right when you join, alt-tab out off the game. I had the same problem once and I was able to alt-tab out before the error occured and saw it when it pops up.
