Out of memory error in XP

I have 1Gb RAM, 80% of HDD free, Athlon 3200  - but when I bring up a small file in MS Works 4.5 and try to print, I get OUT OF MEMORY error msg.
No other progs open.
I have adjusted Virtual Memory to the max 3072.
Sometimes also happens on MS WORD 2000 as well, but not always.

This machine also has another error that may/may not be related - in that I have not been able to access a Restore Point (to more than 6 weeks ago when this error started happening).

I had the same error in my server.

in 80% of the problems it is because of the memory sticks. Try replacing them and look for the faulty one.

Do a scan with MalwareBytes Anti-Malware (www.malwarebytes.org) in safe mode. It could be malware that is consuming memory in the background and causing this problem.

Goto task manager and see which processes take more memory...if none of them seem to take much..then a scan might help identify the problem.

OK - many thanks to all those that contributed, but the answer in the end was to uninstall both printers and I found the offending printer driver was from EPSON !!
All was well after that!

Its mostly something unrelated in the end for Windows XP questions, but its good to see that the problem is no more.
