    I got counter strike installed, and cannot go to desktop for any reason, be
    it me trying to find a server on the net while playing, or norton notifies
    me of an instrusion attempt, i get the following Fatal Error message:
    "Unable to set OpenGL context" followed by an Application Error (hl.exe
    which is half life)message:
    "The instruction at "0x03ab1b49" referenced memory at "0x03d4a148". The
    memory could not be "read". Click on OK to terminate the program."

    anyone have any ideas, before I reinstalled XP last week, it was fine, but
    now, its this silly error. I have installed the latest GFX drivers, direct x
    etc.

    thanx for reading, and hopefully u can shed some light on this problem.

    Is the version of DirectX the same version you had previously?
    DirectX 9 doesn't play nice on some systems.

    I would also try uninstalling and re-installing Half Life, and check
    for any patches that may be available.
