You mean like a new map? New sounds (.wave) like "MMMMONSTER KILL"? If you have cl_allowdownload "0" it shouldn't download anything while joining the server. Check and remove "read-only" from config.cfg. Your personal cfg like Lucifer.cfg or the userconfig.cfg can be read-only but not the config.cfg.
cl_allowdownload "1" - allows the downloading of maps, sounds etc while joining
cl_download_ingame "1" - allows the downloading of files while playing
on the server (like other players custom sprays etc)
Delete the config.cfg, put cl_allowdownload "0" and cl_download_ingame "0" in your personal cfg file (or userconfig.cfg), start counterstrike and then quit, start the game again (you should now have a new default config.cfg) and exec your personal config file. Join that server and it shouldn't download anything.
