Counter Strike Menu Lag

By Dilmog

  1. Hey, recently, (Past 5 months) whenever I have tried to play Counter Stike Source, I get to the main menu, click on find servers, and then the whole thing starts to lag up, and I can't click on any servers, or join them, and it just stops refreshing. However, there is a server that I like to go to, and I can join it by using an out of game link, with no lag issues what-so-ever. Does anyone have any idea of what's wrong with my CSS? Thanks!

    Someone just posted a CS problem similar to this couple days ago, except he got lag ingame, but also started about 4-5 months ago. What OS are you running?

    I noticed that after the December 2006 update from Steam, CS: S no longer worked quite right. I also had a kind of ingame lag. I've just quit playing.
