No one ever said you should run Srcds.EXE - You are suppose to run Srcds.BAT file. Like it says in the guide, open a .txt document and type this in it(Remember to edit it of your own liking):

@echo off
echo Protecting srcds from crashes...
echo If you want to close srcds and this script, close the srcds window and type Y depending on your language followed by Enter.
title Watchdog
echo (%time%) srcds started.
start /wait srcds.exe -console -game cstrike +map de_dust +maxplayers 16
echo (%time%) WARNING: srcds closed or crashed, restarting.
goto srcds

Put it into a .txt file and save it in the same directory as your srcds.EXE and name it as srcds.bat... Remember it should not be a .txt file but a .bat file

Thanks for your solution, but I found the problem... and will explain for others...

I was following a tutorial from a site, and left put "-game cstrike" in the command line... the result is: no error, no warning... nothing!... just start and end in feel miliseconds...

now... finally its running great!!

and one suggestion for that batch....
put parameter "/high" for start command... and others for srcds...

start /high /wait srcds.exe -console -game cstrike -tickrate 66 +map de_dust +maxplayers 8 +mp_dynamicpricing 0

"/high" is to start the proccess with high priority in the system..
tickrate is for quality of game... more explanation here and here

"+mp_dynamicpricing 0" is useful for disable the dynamic pricing game... that joke...
and others cvars, as you can see in this link....

thats all!
