I bought Portal retail, but when I try to run Garrys Mod, it doesn't detect it as an official copy. What do I do? Answered

I bought Portal at my local Target, because I had heard of Garrys Mod. That was before I knew about Steam, however. When I tried to run my (free) copy of Garrys Mod, it said that it (Portal) was not an official copy. What do I do?

Running Garry's Mod 9 with TF2?

I just got TF2, and I wanted a copy of Garry's Mod to go with it. However, I was too lazy to pay for it, so I got the free version of it. However, it said that I SPECIFICALLY needed HL2, HL2 Deathmatch, And CS:S. I've restarted Steam, but it doesn't appear on my Games list. Do I really need those games mentioned before, or will any Source game do? Thanks.

My PC all of a sudden lags on all games.

Here's what happened. I got on today and started up MW2 on my PC. I had just installed a new mod, so i thought nothing of it when it lagged down to 20 FPS, perhaps, when it usually runs at 40-60 FPS. I got bored eventually and went to organize my PC, which included uninstalling a lot of old programs and making new folders. I decided to play borderlands when I was done. I noticed there was a considerable difference in frame rate from the previous day. Same thing with all of my other games, Minecraft, HL2 and all others. The only thing i did overnight was install that MW2 mod through bittorrent ( don't worry, it's legal. Alteriwnet, google it.) I've played around with my GFX card, AMD Raedeon 6540, and no dice. I've played with the clock in catalyst to no avail. I've installed game booster and boosted, but i can't get the lag to go away. The best results I've had are ending one of the 2 processes named wininitt.exe. My FPS almost got back to normal. I Think it has something to do with graphics, as nothing else is really slowed down. Also, I've tried uninstalling the MW2 mod. I played around with my windows 7 theme, too. PC specs Intel i5-2400@3.10 GHz Dual core 4 GB ram AMD Raedeon HD 6450 GFX Windows 7 Home premium -NYPA -Update The lag has been abolished. I don't know how, but it's gone. I did not touch my computer for a long time, iI guess to wait it out, but i'm not the only user of my computer, so it was used. Protips for people coming to this thread because they have the same problem, Scan for viruses Do regular HDD cleaning, i.e defragment, delete old files, registry clean. Lower GFX settings Update drivers Clean the computer's internals -NYPA
