    It is a pretty old game, so it does have the best compatibility with Windows 7 (or any modern OS). Try this: Right click on the game icon, press properties, go to the compatibility tab, chose the option to run in compatibility mode for Windows XP.

    That is a known bug (HL2.exe crashing) I believe and is nothing to be concerned about. I dont know about your other problem.

    It didn't work, I have tried all of them! Last night, I found that if I save game and exit, It will appear that error! It isn't a serious problem but it's pretty uncomfortable

    Like St1ckM4n said, it is a common issue.

    It's not actually crashing, I think. It's just not exiting with full grace, one could say. :)
