    I recently downloaded critical updates for XP then noticed an annoying piece of work appearing on my screen "Windows Delayed Write Failed". WTF is this bull****???. I perform a lot of extractions with Winzip and every time i do this i get this message where previously i had no probs. How do i disable this piece of crap??

    This means that the OS couldn't write something to the hard drive that it needed to write.

    How do you get rid of it?

    Fix the hard drive (that IBM isn't a 75GXP, is it?)
    Or the disk controller
    Or the cabling
    Or stop overclocking

    All hard drives use one of very few different drivers (ie there are not different drivers for different brands and models of HD, though there are differences for, for ex., IDE vs. SCSI), so several million other people are running the same HD drivers that you are. So it's unlikely to be the OS or the updates thereto.
