    Greetings:

    Its called "virtual" memory, essentially your computer takes some of your hard drive space and uses it as a "swap file" to compliment your normal RAM memory, Read about it when your hard drive space becomes limited on space or a certain program is too big (photoshop...)you may get this error.

    I would make sure you at least have 1gig of free disk space or more for your swap file, if not delete some unwanted programs and free them up. You can also go into control panel-system-advanced-performance settings-advanced and change the virtual memory size manually, or let windows do it automatically.
