Work around works

Do not launch or install games from the "My Games" menu, freeze every time.
My work around in the image, works every time for me.

I guess I'm a little late on this one. I'm dual booting XP 32 bit and Vista ultimate 64 bit. In XP everything works fine, but I'm trying to get away from XP on this rig and the only thing that didn't work is Steam. I could never even install it. It comes with the ATI drivers and would never work with that so I always uninstalled it right after updating driver. BTW both XP and Vista use 8.3 driver and no other game or program has an issue.
After trying to install steam several times over the last 3 months all of a sudden it installed last night. I installed everything from the Orange box CDs.
Half Life works great, except right after every loading screen it says"Graph Node out of date.Rebuilding." The game works fine otherwise, but the loading screen seems to take a little longer.
Half Life 2 EP2 started OK last night, but would lock up after about 2 minutes of game play.
This morning so far it works good, no lock up, I tried it for about 15 minutes this morning.
Half life EP 1 doesn't work at all. Every time I try to start it it says it failed to initialize. I tried it from the Steam menu, and also from the desktop icon. Doesn't freeze up though like it used to.
Can anyone help with this?
I was going to make a new thread about this topic this morning 'til I saw this thread. I'm 8 hours late I guess.

Edit: spoke too soon. HL2 EP2 freezes up still after 5 minutes or less. This is awesome.

Many more problems than I had

I don't have any lock ups while playing, maybe you have a stability issue causing that.

Yea that does sound like something else is causing his problems. I never had any issues like that, with mine it would run perfect unless I was surfing the net, or tried to install my games in steam.

Grunion how is everything so far? I would've never thought to try your workaround. Shame how the new mobos are having these issues.

I wish that were it, but they all run just fine in XP. Also All my other games work great in Vista and Half life 2 works great also, I ran through most of the game today without any issues.
Oblivion works
Supreme Commander works
GTA works
C&C3 works
