Could not create file mapping object

Our notebook is Windows 7 64-bit.
We're getting "Could not create file mapping object" error box popup almost 10 or 15 times a minute. It doesn't matter if Internet Explorer (11) is launched or not at that moment when we get the message. So it should not be confused with IE error message that has "(5)" at its end. Any idea? Thanks in advance.

This typically happens when an application is installed that has a plugin ti IE.
See http://answers.microsoft.com/en-us/ie/forum/ie9-windows_7/could-not-creat-file-mapping-object-5/630b525a-0611-4972-93d2-1a61978c50d3?msgId=2f5f1236-108f-469b-a000-1d93cb1ccc72

Also have a look at installed applications and the date of installation and remove any that you feel may be unwanted or the culprit.

Cheers

I checked all the applications installed and I removed the stale and/or suspected ones.
I also updated 32-bit and 64-bit java installations as well as Adobe Reader, etc.
I uninstalled Google Chrome and Mozilla likewise, leaving IE only browser on the machine.
Nothing changed but we observed that these messages start to popup when we access the internet and click any web site link(s) within any browser. If you do not open a browser and browse a webpage, those messages do not popup. There're no related error logs in the event viewer.

It was caused by an auto synchronization program which is triggered by a file/folder change. So it means the browser temp/cache activity makes this program try to sync the changes but it somehow produces these mapping errors. We excluded AppData folder inside the program and the errors dissappeared.
