Counterstrike Lockups

I have 2 issues currently.

1)After being in game, if i return to the menus at any point, my comp locks up.

2)After some maps (changes), i receive a rifles_smoke.spr (or any other wpn spr) has been modified, check your hardware message. This returns me to the main menu and closes cs. But due to error 1, I lock up instead of having cs close.

I have already done the read-only thing with the favsvrs.dat file and that did nothing. Thanks for your help.
