Steam startup crash

I just got Garry’s Mod and when I first started it up it went to a loading screen then crashed saying “hl2.EXE has stopped working” I am very confused and the only documentation of this happening to others was in June but that bug got patched out! Help!

Just report it to garry…or wait till the update\

or reinstall garrysmod.

Thats the worst advice i’ve heard in a long time.

@ 13ncl, Have you tried re-installing Garry’s Mod? What are your system specs?

@lolcats, your correct cant believe what i said yesterday

does the crash give any dumps?
