There is an issue with Source where the HL2 process doesn't close. Press CTRL+ALT & DEL and see if the "hl2.exe" is running.

The only other thing I can think of that would cause it to suddenly stop working is if perhaps your Antivirus software was deleting a file during a routine scan, try checking your Antivirus for any quarantined files.

EDIT: If it does turn out to be an issue with the "hl2.exe" not closing, to save you pressing CTRL+ALT & DEL and manually closing the process, you can create a batch file using Notepad on the desktop with the following line:-

taskkill /F /IM hl2.exe

Save the text file with the ".bat" extension.

If you want to change the icon, just place the bat file in your gesource folder, create a shortcut and drag it to the desktop. Now right click, select properties and under "shortcut" tab click on "Change Icon", select your "gesource/resources" folder and double click the GES icon, then apply followed by OK.
