After a couple hours searching online I finally found something that worked for me, OTHER than reformating which is not an option for me.

This is for WINDOWS VISTA, don't know if it will work for XP. I use 32Bit, don't know if it works for 64.
Start - Run - net localgroup administrators NetworkService /ADD

Right after I ran that, a small cmd prompt window popped open then closed instantly, and CS:S loaded no problem. I don't know what that command is, or what it does, but it worked for me where all else failed.

It also fixed my msinfo32 which was not reporting any date back.

If this fix is listed elsewhere on these forums I appologize, I only found one fix for this issue online, it was on the Steam Forums.

Hope this helps!

I fixed the problem on Windows XP sp3 by reinstalling msinfo32. I followed the steps at "windowsxp.mvps.org/rebuildhelp.htm". You can find a cache of servicepack files at "C:\\WINDOWS\\ServicePackFiles\\i386" and you will probably need a Windows XP CD.

Before reinstalling msinfo32, I found by just running the program and scrolling through half of the information would refresh my system information and let me run programs that would crash previously, like Counterstrike:Source. After running CS:S, it would crash again though, so I'd have to repeat the process of running msinfo32.

Now that msinfo32 has been reinstalled, everything works like a charm.

I have the same problem, getting the hl2.exe error.
In another thread I saw it said to check for any windows updates, reboot.
Or you can try doing this:

1. Open up your Steam Games
2. Right Click the game
3. Click Properties
4. Click the Tab Local Files
5. Click verify integrity of game cache

It should take a couple minutes, try that, see if it helps.
