Portal - Error

After installing Portal (part of The Orange Box from Steam) it now just comes up with an error message after about 30 seconds (not reaching the main meun) saying:

Portal: hl2.exe - Application error
The instruction at 0x00010095 referenced at 0x2608Z5A%. The memory could not be written
Click OK to terminate the program

what does this mean and how do I solve it, I will give rep to the first person that solves this, thank you sooooo much!!!

try uninstalling and reinstalling, also make sure your Direct X is up to date.

wrong section though bud.

i know this might sound strange but i have seen something like this on a friends machine and it turned out it was caused by him running a GIF as a wallpaper,You arent running a strange file as a wallpaper are you IE: not a Jpeg ?
