I bought halflife two recently and have found my pc unable to run it despite it having twice the recommended specs..
What can i do to speed it up?
I have already -Disabled any unnecessary processes in the background (thru processes.msc) -Disabled any stem trya icons i dont need from starting -Disabled any other programs -Turned off XP's graphical niceties
these are the minimum specs for hf2. what are your specs? MINIMUM SYSTEM REQUIREMENTS

sorry, but it still won`t work properly. here`s an example: i play asheron`s call 2. the min specs are "win 2000/xp/me/98. proc 733mhz. 2gb HD. gxf 32mb with hardware T&L. here is the reality. amd 2500 proc, 1gb mem, geforce 5700. and it only runs well on medium.. if you want to play hf2 then you need a new gfx card minimum.
