I've got a better one.
Control Panel/Add or Remove Programs. Select HL2 and uninstall it.

How would that optimize this wonderful game and multi-award winning
piece of SW? (ps it also wont uninstall it, but you've already displayed
that you're a clueless dweeb making an arse of yourself at every
opportunity).

Is HL2 so intrusive it becomes embedded and has to have its own
special way to uninstall? More Valve arrogance. A Steamless machine is
a clean machine.

Less intrusive than other games and software actually. Right-click on
game and choose 'delete game content'. That's it. Steam is uninstalled
from the 'add/remove' in control panel as normal though I dont see why
anyone would want to do that...

And there we have it. I was right all along. By HL2 I of course meant
Steam along with it.

No. It is a subcomponent of the Steam Game Manager. It is removed from
Steam - simply : options, delete game content. In the same way it can be
backed up to variable sized media from within Steam - simply : right
mouse click- backup game files.

You really should quit while you're only so far behind. You do look
incredibly stupid jumping in and spouting off about things you appear to
have no first hand experience of. If you want to be the new angry voice
of gamers everywhere now that diFool has been killfiled by everyone,
then I suggest you find a topic you are familiar with.

What is it with trolling retards like yourself that you feel the need to
change your usenet moniker in order to escape killfiles?

Chris Pound becomes Chris "Kink" (rolls eyes). Chris Dickhead more like.
