Windows - delayed write failed


Recommended Posts


I had formatted by desktop and had installed windows XP. Since then a small pop up keeps appearing stating

Windows -Delayed write failed

Windows was unable to save all the data for the file C:\WINDOWS\$NSservicepACKuNINSTALL$\autochk.exe. The data has been lost. This error may be caused by a failure of your computer hardware or network connection. Please try to save this file elsewhere.

Last night I was trying to install certain things on the desktop

a) Update CA anti virus - which did not download completely and the error message started to pop up again.

B) I had installed Microsoft office as well and was able to access Ms Excel/ Word and other applications. Now it displays an error.

"Microsoft office has not been installed for the current user

Attached is the screenshot of the error delayed write failed.

Please help
