Memory Issues

Three users are getting the same error message when opening up 2 or more Microsoft Office products.  "There isn't enough memory to complete this action"

All three computers are running Windows 8 with 4GB of ram.

Any ideas what I should look at?

4 GB of memory should be enough unless the spreadsheets or documents are huge. I assume Windows 8 is 64-bit as Windows 32-bit is limited to 3 GB even if 4 Gb is installed.

Can other users with similar 4 GB computers run the same Office programs?

Do the users have other programs running?  Lot of Chrome windows can chew up memory. Run Task Manager and sort by Memory. What is using all the memory ?
