1) If the computer has more than 512 MB of RAM -- then add the following to WIN.INI in the [VCache) section: MaxFileCache=524288

2) Delete all *.tmp files: Start --> Find --> Files or Folders --> *.tmp and serahc all subdirectories under c:\ (and any other hdd)--> select all files found by clicking on one and then Control-A (to select all) --> then delete.

3) Delete anything under Temporary Internet Files (including cookies).

4) Consider doing a scandisk and a defrag.

5) Delete all normal.dot (template files) that you find... they sometimes get corrupt and cause problems like this.

Turn off or disable FastFind. Use Ctrl+Alt+Delete to verify that no other programs are running. Don't use Word as an e-mail editor for Outlook. Turn off Journaling in Outlook if it has been started

When I recently ran into Word and Excel running out of memory, we did a virus scan and found the Nimda virus. I'd recommend installing and/or updating your antivirus software and doing a thorough scan.
