Bought GMod last night and today when I started Steam I saw it was trying to updates some games. I thought it was the usual minor update sort of thing you get from time to time but it was all my Half Life games, Team Fortress 2 and Counter Strike, 9 games in all. None are installed at present and no way do I want to download that lot as I don’t play them now.
I know GMod requires certain games to be installed and from the list I saw Left4Dead was one and I have that installed so thought it would be good to go.
Anyway, firstly, do I really need to download and/or install all these games again?
Secondly, if not, how do I switch them from their permanently ‘download paused’ status. Is there anyway I can cancel these downloads?

Thanks in advance.
