I'm having a problem with counter-strike anthology in my pc... I use Windows XP... the problem is that when i open the game, even to click New Game or anything else, it gets terrible slow!! and the soud kind of lags... But after a while when i make my own map i get too much lag!!

First i thought it was problem with the installation, but then i reinstallated and the same thing happened, then i thought it could be my video driver, but then i thought: i play Priston Tale and the System Requirement is bigger than Counter Strike....

How can i solve this?

    When you run counterstrike, open the Task Manager, can you see a process that uses large CPU amount? If so find out what it is and decide whether you need it.

    Update to the latest patch for Counterstrike and disable AntiVirus running at the same time to check if problem goes away

    Can also be a video driver conflict. Some games don't work well with some drivers.

    I strongly feel that it's a problem with your graphics card.  You should probably upgrade your graphics card.
    There you can see all the requirements for this game. It does need 3D graphics card. Make sure that you are having one.
