I have a problem with my ability to open the "mail" icon in my control panel.

When I try I get an error "Your system needs more memory or system resources. Close some windows and try again".

Comp Spec:

Processor: Intel(R) Xeon(R) CPU W3520 @ 2.67GHz
Memory: 8 GB
System Type Windows 7 Enterprise 64bit
Office Version: Office 2010 64bit

I get this problem after a fresh reboot, it only started to happen recently.

So far I have just made sure I have all of the Windows updates up to date and ran a repair on Microsoft Office. I have also run outlook as an admin with the "/fixmapi" switch. I have also made sure the C:\Windows\System32\mapistub.dll is there. The problem happens across several users on the computer.

Anyone else have any dieas what the problem could be? It's only started to happen recently, I don't know exactly when.

Normal Outlook functions and features seem to work as normal.

Check your settings for page file. The system might have a corrupt page file.
