Dedicated Gmod Server Hangs

Hello all,

I have run multiple gmod servers for some time now. I am familiar with the process of installation and configuration. However i recently had a severe crash and had to format my HDD. Reinstalled a new server via hldsupdatetool, when it completed install i attempted to run the server. Upon server initiation, the server shows the third line:
Game.dll loaded for “Garry’s Mod”
and then just stops. I have tried a complete reinstallation of the server, to no avail. Any help is greatly appreciated, I will supply more information as needed. Thanks in advance.

A complete reinstallation of Windows resolved this.

Thanks I worried so much.

Seem quite drastic though.
