In short, it's probably a failure with the update on your end - your machine screwed something up while updating (connection choked, whatever).

This happens to me often after updates. I simply restart my PC and then everything works fine.

Also, check to make sure you have enough free space on your hard drive. The gw.000 file is a temp file which is the same size as gw.dat - about 4Gigs.
