Gmod won't load main menu

Every time I try to load Gmod, my game freezes at the first loading screen. I can only get out via ctrl-alt-del.

My computer is more than capable of running Gmod, Vista, 4GB RAM, 2.8 GHz dual core, NVIDIA GT 120M.

It’s not addons, this is a fresh install on a new computer.

The game is supposed to freeze for a while at the loading screen. If it stays frozen for like 30 mins, then something is wrong. If it’s frozen for less than 5 minutes, everything is fine.

It’s been almost half an hour now, still frozen.

Ya I have this exact same problem, anyone know what’s up?

Same problem. Just freezes at the gman picture.

Holy smokes! half an hour?!??!!? try reinstalling
