I am having a hard time finding the full patch from retail version (fresh install) that isn't on fileplanet or requires a paid membership to download. Can anybody help me out? Reinstalling a game for my stepdad and having trouble finding this patch. Any help is greatly appreciated.

because the automatic update tool tells me invalid internet connection. I read on one of the forums that Valve shutdown all the won authentication servers, which would explain why I couldn't get "a Valid internet connection." I just installed the "out of the box" counter-strike. I think I may have finally found a steam download that doesn't require a paed membership. We'll see how it goes **crosses fingers**

??? install steam from vavle's website, then put in your HL/CS cdkey and you can download it for free from steam
