It seems you need to reinstall Steam before installing HL2.

Is that a legit install of HL2 or was it pirated along with PacSteam?

Uninstall everything. Go to http://www.steampowered.com download Steam, register your product, download and install it. And you should be good to go. if you have any further problems contact Steam support at...
