    The program you have associated with a certain file type in Windows doesn't have anything to do with what happens when you're playing a game. If CS is freezing when you run your scripts, it's probably because you have a bad command in it.

    Incidently, my .cfg files are always 'Notepads'. It's the quickest, easiest way to access them. Same goes for .ini files.

    If you really think that's the problem, you could always try re-associating your .cfg files to open with hl.exe (in your Half-Life directory). Hold the Shift key while you right-click on a .cfg file, then select 'Open With...'

    if the file is named *.cfg then that is what it is, it doesnt change it in any way, just that it opens it and reads it in notepad, hence you must have edited something else or something in the cfg that it didnt like. therefore i would try re-installing CS, and if that doesnt work re-install HL

    Well , I somehow linked my .cfg files to note pad.... and i heard from 10 people that it shouldnt matter... and that the game will still run


    So I updated my Direct X to 9.0 and i updated my video drivers to the latest..


    It fixed my crashing prob with the notepads lol


    I should have done those updates anyway...
