Usually means your system has run out of memory and then ran out of virtual memory. I experienced this because I'd somehow turned VM off.

Turn it back on from the System panel in the System Properties.

Right-click My Computer and choose Properties.

The Virtual Memory settings will then be in one of two places depending on which flavour of Windows you're using:

For Windows 98 or ME: Performance -> Advanced -> Virtual Memory (IIRC). You want Windows to handle it all, you may have a custom one set up.

For Windows 2000 or XP: Advanced -> Settings (first one down) -> Advanced -> Change -> you want a system managed file.
