    Didn't see this post until after I logged into server, was wondering why no one I played with normally was on, so I came here. What a relief! Cleaned my PC real good, thanks for the thread, freaking life saver.

    i need help i was playing west 2 and during it somone was spamming so someone tried to ban him but the banned me instead now i cant play on any of the servers. HELP THESE ARE MY FAV TTT SERVERS!
  3. I'm having trouble fixing this, whenever I run the program from my garrysmod folder, It tells me there is an error, and that "hl2.exe" and "srcds.exe" are not found. Is there any fix to this? Or am I just doing something wrong? Or would I be better off just waiting for a eventual patch?

    why don't you just run it from steam not the folder?
  5. I was just doing it how they told me to, I'm not really computer savvy, so I don't know what I'm doing.

    A patch was released a few minutes ago from Garry, fixing all the exploits. Everyone is safe. However, I don't know if anyone who originally had the "virus" still has it.
  7. Still have it, patch installed and everything, just need help fixing the virus now.

    The exploit was patched by Garry and all our servers have been updated to protect from the exploit.

    Welp, guess it's alright for now. Hopefully. I haven't been playing GMod couple days recently, but it's good to know.

    I disagree... That was epic winning right there. If it were me, though, I would have had the "virus" go from coughing to making smoker noises and eventually banning all infected players to replace them with Headcrab Zombies (Gmod Zombie Apocalypse).
  12. I'm still infected even though I have patch Gmod and when I try to run the bat file it responds with
    ERROR: The Process "hl2.exe"not found.
    ERROR: The Process "sreds.exe" not found.
    Could Not find C:\Programfiles (86x)\steam\steamapps\common\GarrysMod\Garrysmod\materials\cooltexture.vtf
    please help.

    Same glitch got into Rust as well. I was playing the other day and some dude kept saying *cough* in chat. Ugh.

    Is it safe to go on the west server?

  17. Anyone else think the coughing was a 420 joke?
