    I would say DO THE UPDATE. The game might trying to save it self on swap file. check the swap and buy a new hard drive they are cheap these days and you will need it for any expansion comes out.

    Swap File

    A swap file is an area on your hard disk used as virtual memory. It's called a swap file because virtual memory management software swaps data between it and main memory (RAM).

    I am sorry I don't know if swap file and page file is diffrent but I meant so say pagefile Control Panel -> System -> Advance -> Performence -> Advance -> and Virtual Memory on the bottom see the amout of MB that much disk space is saved by windows you can change it (if you have less of equal of 512MB Ram I don't recommend it) by clicking Change -> Custom Size.
