HL2.exe has stopped working

For some reason, Counter-strike Source just won't work. I haven't played in about, 4 weeks, because i just don't have the time these days to play games. But today I do, but CS:S will not work.

When I start Counter-strike Source, I get this window after about 5 seconds after the 'Preparing to launch Counter-Strike Source..' window.

btw, I'm running on Vista. I never got this error before. I've tried to re-install Counter-Strike Source 3 times. I've tried uninstalling from the control panel. I've tried uninstalling by deleting local content. I've tried restarting my computer. I've googled 'hl2.exe has stopped working'.

But I haven't found a solution to my problem. I am sorry if this has been posted. I've searched on FPSBanana for a thread like this one. But the threads I've looked at never seemed to have a solution.

Sorry again if this has been posted.

Thanks in advance, uNeek.

    I have no idea how to pinpoint the problem in vista really... Are the ports for steam and CS:S forwarded correctly? Do you have any viruses? Do you have a program blocker? Like an anti-virus program or firewall?

    The best thing to do really is format your hard drive.
