Hey mate, try this.

Right click on the shortcut, choose properties, compability, mark the Run this program in compability mode for, choose Windows XP SP2.
Thank you

umm I have the problem withs cs 1.6 ( sorry my bad english ) but everytime when I dry to connect to the server then its starts downloadin de dust 3 :S:S I downloaded de dust 3 but then it says that couldnt download some sprite file :S:S plz help .
If the compatibility tweak (properties - compatibility mode - WIndows XP) doesn't work for any of you: delete the old shortcut, create a new one to the hl.exe and and enter this to the target field on Shortcut tab: D:\Games\Half-Life\hl.exe -console -game cstrike

For some reason the compatibility settings didn't work with the old shortcuts I created in Windows XP and Vista..
