For nearly a month I couldn't play any Source engine based games, like Counter Strike: Source, Half Life 2, Half Life 2 Deathmatch, GoldenEye Source, and the like. For some reason I was able to run Garrys Mod, a game that completely profits from the engine... But, turns out I could only use half of the stuff available.
Everytime when I'd start up a game through Steam(there's no other way...), it would for five seconds before the HL2 Engine Error popped up. For a month I tried literally everything, re-installing all games, one by one. Went through a crapload of websites. Downloaded nearly forty seperate patches.
So, after I gave up hope. I figured 'what the hell', and I disabled the in-game Steam menu, as I got sick of it.
...Aaaaannnddddd it turns out that exactly THAT was the problem all along. The games would crash cause of Steam trying to give that pop up message; "To access in-game Steam Community, press Tab+Shift". Steam itself was the damn cause all along.
I was almost starting to miss the fragfest Counter Strike...
