    It opens and then closes every time. Why?

    Could i Uninstall and reinstall?

    If you haven't already, click Refresh SDK Content in the SDK and let it go through that process, then try to start Hammer.
    If that doesn't work, right click on TF2 in steam, click Properties, then go to Local Files > Verify Integrity of Game Cache. Wait until it finishes, then start TF2, close it once it loads, and go back into the SDK. You may want to verify integrity of game cache on the SDK as well.
    If none of that works I would suggest reinstalling the SDK, since it's not that large of a file.
