I'm having an issue with what appears to be the multiplayer games of source. (tf2, gmod, css, hl2:dm)
I don't quite remember when it happened but it wasn't too long ago. When I launch one of these games, the screen is invisible until I click or another action is done. The memory usage is less than 150MB.
If I put hl2.exe into compatibility mode of winxsp3, then it launches, but aero gets disabled.
I tried launching these games on a new windows profile and all the games launched fine.
I really don't want to spend the time to migrate my profile to a new one since that would fuck with a lot of things.
Does anyone have any idea what could be causing this and how I could solve it?
