  • Right click on Computer and open Properties.
  • Select Advanced System Properties
  • Click Advanced tab
  • Under Performance, click Settings
  • Under Performance Options, click Advanced tab
  • Here under Virtual memory pane, select Change
  • Uncheck Automatically manage paging file size for all drives
  • Highlight your system drive
  • Select Custom size
  • Change the Initial size value and the Maximum size value to a higher value
  • (I Recommend 3500 in first box then 8000 in second)
  • Click Set
  • Finally Click Apply/OK all the way.

Then restart and try again! Good Luck!
