2. Smashintolittlebits.
5. Insert Shotgun.

Right now:

Try w/o firewall.
Lol, maybe the shotgun will be the best solution.

Is there anyone you know that has a PC that you could test the card with?
I'd try that before any major software re-installation.

If you bought the card in store I'd suggest bringing it there and getting them to test it. If not then RMA would be a good option. It really doesn't sound like a driver issue since you are being so thorough with your cleaning.

Good luck resolving this

Best/easiest way to eliminate any sort of software would be to reinstall from scratch (or if you have a spare drive like someone else mentioned install onto that so you don't lose your current information). That really isn't an easy method... but since I use an unattended install for XP, it wouldn't take me that long .

STEAM
A few suggestions with Steam.

1. Close Steam. Go to your Steam folder (Crogram Files\\Steam) and delete the file ClientRegistry.blob. Run Steam. This will force Steam to re-update itself, which I've had some success with it fixing problems on my old PC.

2. If you do plan to do a fresh install of Steam: navigate to your Steam folder and then to Steamapps. Backup all the .GFC files, or simply move them out of the folder and onto the Desktop (or nay other non Steam related place). Then reinstall Steam. Once the Steam client updates all the way, close it, move the .GFC files back into the Steam folder (you may need to create the folder "steamapps"), and then run Steam. -- This is a HUGE time saver as you save all of the game files.

3. Also note you can save your bindings as well by going to C:\\Program Files\\Steam\\SteamApps\\*username here*\\Counter-Strike\\Cstrike\\Config.cfg (original CS) or C:\\Program Files\\Steam\\SteamApps\\*username here*\\Counter-Strike Source\\cfg\\Config.cfg.
