Steam is telling my friends im in Gmod, but im not.

my steam says im ingame, but im not. i cant join my friends via friends list any more. anytime i start Gmod it stays there forever, i have to restart steam every time.
please help.

It may not be properly closing hl2.exe, if you go to taskmanger then go to processes you might be able to find it and end it.
Other than that its probably a steam bug.

Mine does that sometimes too, I just ignore it.

If it’s keeping you from playing another game, do what he said above.

Ctrl + Alt + Delete and go to the processes tab, select hl2.exe and delete.

its not in my processes, its just kinda THERE
