hi, i've been having a slight problem with counterstrike lately, in that when i try to load the game, my FPS seems to drop down to between 4 and 8, for no apparant reason.
i will load steam etc etc go on play games, select counter-strike, and it will load normally, but as soon as it loads i can't do anything because the fps is so low, i can move my cursor over the server button for example, and nothing will happen for a while, and then i will get the "click" sound your supposed to get when you move your curser over an option, except played over a loop for about a minute. when the problem first arrised i found it odd, so i opened task manager, and closed a few processes that i didn't need and all was well (this was about a month ago) last week the game worked fine, ie. no fps problems, and i didn#t have to close any processes to get it working, but this week its started doing it again, and this time nothing seems to work. I have tried closing unnecessary processes, i have run a spyware scan with S&D, ewido, and microsoft antispyware, as well as running a full system scan with norton internet security; and finally running CleanUp, and using that to delete all my temp files and cookies and stuff like that. after all that, nothing, so as far as i can tell this isn't a problem caused by malware because apparantly my system is clean.
I haven't bothered reinstalling the game yet, do you think this would solve the problem? the last time i had a problem with CS, reinstalling didn't seem to solve it (also a video problem- i was stook on a resolution that didn't agree with my monitor's refresh rate, however thats in the past now)
