Firstly right Click on My Computer and select properties. Go to the performance tab and see how much ram you have as far as Windows is concerned and see how much is available, keeping in mind that your swap file is added in the available memeory.
How long has it been since you rebuilt your operating system, you may have a corrupt or very large registry, their is a Article on rebuilding your registry from Dos on this site that could be worth looking at.
Unfortunatly just because you know that there is 64mb, ect in your system, this isn't always what windows is seeing. One of your Ram chips could also be damaged but you would probably be receiving extensive other errors as well.
I would also try and Un-install Word and than re-install it.

As well as checking the things Answer 1 suggested, check your available space on your hard disk. If this is under 100mb Windows 95 may have insufficient space for its SWAP file. If this is the case free up some hard disk space and your problem will go away.

Hope this helps

Mike

Another posibility is to move you Swap file to another hard drive if available. Take control of the swap file. Set the Max swapfile size based on what they are using (128-517M {or MAX}). Issue sounds related to swap file as mentioned in the prior2 replys.
