FWIW - a format and reinstall may not be necessary. Just offload some of the stuff on your hard drive to DVD's or to a USB external drive. This should free up enough space to do a defrag. Generally a minimum of 15% free space is recommended on any hard drive - but this may increase if you have a boat load of very large files.
Also, you may want to run "chkdsk /f /r" (wihtout the quotes) from the Run dialog (Start...Run). It'll say it can't run because the disk is in use, and will ask you if you want to run it on the next reboot. Select "Y", press Enter and then reboot.
