Exchange OWA - Window couldn't be opened because your computer is low on memory

I'm running a windows 7 64bit machine with IE 10 installed.  When I log into my Outlook Web App and try to create a new message I get the following error.   I've tried lots of fixes from the web with no resolution.

" The window couldn't be opened because you computer is low on memory. Please close some windows and try again "

Thanks ....

Can you have Windows manage the swap file and how much memory do you have?  If you go to the resource monitor do you see ample of free physical memory?  If not, you need to diagnose why they are being taken up.

Sounds like a problem with diskspace.  Have you run something like WinDirStat?  (this is a link to the portable version so you don't have to install anything)

@ Wayne,

Windows is managing the swap file,  computer is running 8gigs of memory ...  Resource monitor shows I'm only using 21% of that memory ......

My understanding is this is a known issue affecting many users but I've yet to find an answer to it ......  Web is filled with several posts listing the same issue ....

@ Thomas,

Diskspace is fine ... I have 98 gigs left out of 350
Thomas Zucker-ScharffSolution GuideCommented:
The only time this has occurred with me is when my diskspace has gone to low.  It is amazing the amount of space temp files take up.  Also if you are using NTLite and didn't dismount the image, then you'll have over 10gb of temp space used by that.
Thomas Zucker-ScharffSolution GuideCommented:
If diskspace and RAM are okay, have you tried using a different browser?

@ Thomas,

Works fine with Chrome and seems to be an IE issue .....  I originally had the problem with IE11 but downgraded to IE10 with the same problem.    Its been an issue for quite sometime now and I'm being pushed to find a solution .....

Thanks ...
Thomas Zucker-ScharffSolution GuideCommented:
does it work with chrome and ietab installed?  or opera with user agent switcher  set to IE?
Joel BrownIT DirectorAuthor Commented:
@ Thomas,

As we don't usually use Chrome I'm not familiar with ietab etc;

Thomas Zucker-ScharffSolution GuideCommented:
It is worth checking out. If chrome is installed,  go to the chrome store by just typing in ietab, install the plugin and configure it.

In opera search for User Agent Switcher under file->extensions->new extendions. Install the extension.
