Can't explain why but can tell you how to solve it.

Allocate more disk space for Virtual Memory. You must be the administrator to do this.
Go 'right click' My Computer -> properties, Advanced, Performance, Advanced, Virtual Memory. Choose your disk drive (if more than one) and twiddle the options there.

That mean you open too many applications and there isn't enough memory.
You can increase the virtual memory.
Right-click on "My Computer" --> Properties, select "Advance" tab, click on setting under "Performance" select "Advance" tab. Under "Virtual Memory", click "Change".

"To have Windows select the best paging file size, click System managed size. The recommended minimum size is equivalent to 1.5 times the RAM on your computer, and 3 times that figure for the maximum size. For example, if you have 256 MB of RAM, the minimum size is 384 MB, and the maximum size is 1152 MB."
