Insuffient System Resources exist to complete the requested service SBS 2003 Workstation

I have a client with an SBS2003 with 6 XP Pro workstations. One of the users  is having issues with his XP Workstation. This has been going on for a while now. No pattern to it. Every so often at lease once a week his workstation will just stop working. What I mean by this is...

 "Insuffient System Resources exist to complete the requested service"

I have changed my page file using http://www.experts-exchange.com/Operating_Systems/WinNT/Q_21860785.html as the example.

Please note: These errors happen when the Workstation is idle. First thing in the morning a couple of times per week. Please also note that this has 4GB of DDR2 memory and has a quad core processor. The user does not use anywhere near the capabilities that this type of spec PC can use. He uses Microsoft Outlook, IE and some networked apps from the Server. He doesn't know how to mutitask and very seldom does he ever have more than one app opened at the same time.
This is 32bit XP? Just for kicks, pull 2GB of RAM and see how it runs then.
