    Is the application Microsoft Works?
    If so, then I think it's just a bug in the program. I get that warning every now and then myself even though I have plenty of RAM.

    If is isn't MS Works, then what application are you opening and does it only occur only for that one application?
    Also, what other applications are you running at the same time?

    Back to what Teddy whas talking about, how much RAM do you have? Also, have you (or someone else) messed with the pagefile settings?
