Hmm, never seen this before. Fortunately, I may know how to fix it.

1. Go into Start -> Run
2. Type "msconfig" into the box, and click OK.
3. Go into the Startup tab.
4. Uncheck everything with a path starting with "C:\Program Files".
5. Click Apply.
6. When prompted to restart your computer, click "Restart now".

If the problem persists, post back here.

Have you installed any new programs lately? Any firewalls, anti-spyware or things like that?

Edit: I've thought of something that we could try:

1. Open Task Manager (Right click the system tray, or press CTRL+ALT+DEL)
2. Go into the Processes tab.

List everything you see in there and post it. I'll compare it to mine and tell you what you should try shutting down.

Could you post a screenshot with your problem? Would be more helpful, since Half-Life shouldn't even ask to shutdown any programs. Either way you have spyware on your computer, or you have to re-install steam and half-life + ESF. I doubt low memory could cause this problem, unless you really don't have allot of memory in your computer.
