Is it pirated or did you buy it?

The creator of Gmod added many, many, many bugs, glitches and other problems if the game detects it is a pirated version.

How long did you wait before exiting the program? How long did it hang for?

Do you have another Source engine game bought and downloaded on your computer? A game like half life or TF2?

Or Portal 1. Portal 2 does not count, however.

No it isn't pirated. I had the problem since I woke up this morning I had to get out task manager and end the process I have waited over 2 hours on that loading screen nothing happens

There are only two things I can think of, try disabling your firewall and opening it or remove any addons from your addonso folder in case of any conflicting addons. If those don't work, maybe wait it out and it may work.

The other games are installed, right?

If so I really can't think of what would cause it to freeze.

Googling says to either delete the old GCF files or reinstall the game. It does not seem to be a very common problem.
