Another solution that worked for me for cs 1.6 is: go to hl.exe (in the steam folder) am right click -> Properties -> Compatibility -> and then check "Disable desktop composition". After that click apply and ok.
Go then to: right click on the steam icon (near clock) and then Library -> right click on Counter Strike -> Properties -> Set launch options and type "-noforcemaccel -noforcemparms -noforcemspd -32bpp -freq 75 -w 800 -h 600" (you can change to -freq 75, 85,100,120 depending on your monitor) -> ok.
Start hl.exe and you will see that the case will get to the 800x600 resolution from the launch options. After that put your monitor (desktop resolution) to 800x600 and play the game.
The only bad part is that you have to change the resolution to 800x600 every time you entered cs 1.6.
If you like to have cs on your widescreen just put in the launch option "-w 1920 -h 1080" or what resolution you are currently using.
That's all. GL
