    Occasionally when I join a server and I get to the welcome page (where it displays the site's website and/or intro text and all that) my game freezes and I am usually forced to manually shut down my computer.

    I am not exactly sure why this happens and I can't find help for this problem anywhere... So if anyone can help me I would appreciate it.

    Normally happens to me too but in a different way, when you join a server, All those options before choosing team/class Lags horribly, So I just have to mash the Next Button :(.

    this happened to me alot...and for me the problem was that I would try and open the overlay while the server was loading, then the game would get stuck between the overlay and the server

    Only happens on user input when you're connecting I believe. The game doesn't know whether to take input from the server or the user first, so it crashes. Try not pressing anything for a bit after you connect and see if it still crashes.

    When I click connect on a server, while its connecting and before I reach the choose teams option etc I do nothing! No shift-tab, no alt-tab, no clicking. Just wait for it to connect or TF2 will crash, been like that for ages.
