Recently I've been getting these Windows-Write delayed Failed messages making it impossible for me to use my computer at the time and also unable to reboot as well(so I have to do it the unsafe way). I just want to see if there is a solution for this before I go and reformat my entire computer. Ill list somethings that I know have to be one of the factors that has caused this.

1) I installed a new graphics with graphics acceleration(plus drives). Note: if I leave my computer alone these errors dont pop up. But after playing games it pops up(so could this be my graphics drives that are faulty?).
2)Ran an anti-Malware scan in which I found trackercookies in my system drive.

Now, I wouldnt think that my mal-ware scan caused this but Im just putting it up there. The graphics card and the drivers I put in are the ATI Radeon: Diamond Stealth S9250 PCI 256 DDR. Im currently running Windows XP Professional.
Intel®
Celeron® CPU 2.70 GHz
2.69 GHz, 768 MB of RAM

The errors that im giving are things such as Unable to save all of the data for C://Windows/system32/config/SysEvent.evt and a bunch more files all in my hardrive containing all windows system material.

Ill post back with updates if I have already decided to reformat.
P.S.: Bare with me because I know little about in depth computer information so I may not understand some things you say.
*Update #2* I tried to do a diskcleanup on my C drive which contains all of my Windows system files and it popped up the above said errors as well just a bit of a different path though. I did not run any games at all so Im guessing that its not because I run games that causes these errors.
*Update #3* I have reformatted my computer up to this point.
