Hey, Iv started up half life on my windows vista 64 bit computer. Counterstrike runs fine, however I wanted to start up half life so I could run sven coop. Whenever I start up half life the screen loads and then before the

"new game"
"multiplayer"
"options"

etc etc at the bottom left of the screen can load the game quits on me. Anyone know what the problem could be?

There is a known issue with Half-Life running on 64-bit versions of Windows. Adding a DEP exception for Half-Life may fix it. You can also try verifying the game cache.

Ah how would I add a DEP exception for Half life?

I have no experience with the DEP myself since I use 32-bit Vista and Half-Life runs fine. But try reading this:
