That actually sounds like a video card driver issue. You should update your Radeon or Geforce drivers (go to AMD.com or Nvidia.com respectively) if you have not done this already. If you don't have a video card and just use an Intel video chipset (slow compared to the others) go to Intel for the drivers.
Removing files from your computer won't do much more than give you extra space. (which is important in itself, but it wouldn't cause an error like that)
Good luck in fixing things!
Edit: I just realized that this post was from last year! I wonder how it got onto the main page in the most-viewed posts section.
