I have read up on this difficulty and it seems that Antivirus can occasionally interfere with your games. However if you disabled McAfee, I donít notice this as the trouble. One more major reason can be running out of Page Pool Memory. This is a unique type of memory utilized for Direct3D Applications. Running out of Page Pool Memory will effect in game crashing as you describe.

Could you please tell us what is your computer specifications? You can easily choose the Compatibility mode to play CS 1.6 on Windows 7. Just right click on the exe file of counter strike and go to Compatibility tab, after that just tick on 'Run this program in compatibility mode for:' then choose 'Windows XP (Service Pack 3), start the game and play without any problems

What cd key for which patch ?? I cannot see any discussion above about patch or any Cd key. For playing CS on lan what you need to do is just make a server and let other people on the lan join your server. Thats it. What patch is required for the same ??

Re: Counter Strike 1.6 won't work in Windows 7 64-bit

Alrite, i got the problem. This error basically occurs when you have any downloaded verison, or you might have borrowed CD from any of your friend that has been already used. Anyways, there is an patch called as "patch v23b". Many users have fixed the said error with this. Just google it, download and install. One more thing, adding amx mod to server can also fix this problem

First right click on the shortcut of the counter strike and then click on properties. Go in compatibility and then choose Windows XP. Exit the windows and then run the game back. If that does not work the install Counter Strike Source.
or choose windows xp sp 3, its work based on compatibility thank youuu

this thing really fix the problem, you can also use "-software" (without quotes ofcourse)

do it in here (without quotes): right click the icon, then properties
in the target tab, it should be

target:"C:\Program Files (x86)\Counter-Strike 1.6\cstrike.exe" -software
or
target:"C:\Program Files (x86)\Counter-Strike 1.6\cstrike.exe" -d3d

this is the only way, the video is not that fast as open GL but atleast it works.

Thanks axderka
