Counter-Strike Source Problem

  1. Within 10 minutes or less of joining an online game, Counter-Strike Source (or any other hl2 based game) freezes. After 5 minutes of being frozen, a message at the top right indicates "warning connection problem" and i am able to move my view in game but my surrounding is still frozen. Finally, i disconnect and i receive "lost connection to server"

    If i join a game after that, the game immediately freezes upon joining the server. I have to restart Steam and Counter-Strike just to have it freeze within 10 minutes again. :confused: Could this be a network or hardware problem? Thanks for the help.....:grinthumb

    This isn't a problem of your hardware. There are some files corrupted in CSS.
    Remove the program and reboot. Then reinstall it. That will work.

    Ok, make sure you have no P2P programs running. Also, make sure you try defragmenting the game files (right click, properties, local game files)

    Also, if you search for CS:S problems, you will probably find my old thread with a lot of info.
