Server connection problems - Crash dump included

I’ve been trying to connect to several servers only to get errors like “Invalid Steam key size.” I realize the cause of this problem and I won’t really go into it.

What I really mean to talk about is a crash I’ve been getting every time I connect to one particular server. Put simply, I crash every time I get to “sending client info”. I’ve reinstalled Gmod, deleted the garrysmod folder entirely, checked the game cache, etc., but can’t seem to find the problem. I’m kind of hoping someone here can help shed some light on the situation so I’ve copied the crash dump and pasted it below:

My computer specs are as follows:
Processor: Intel Core2 quad CPU Q9550 @ 2.83GHz
Ram: 4 GB
OS: Widnows 7 Home Premium 64
Video: ATI Radeon HD 4650

I’m not entirely sure, but I think the new multi-core support is screwing things up for me.
