Windows 7: system error code 8

09 Apr 2011   #1

windows 7, home premium 64 bit
system error code 8

every 2 days i get this irritating message: "system error code 8, not enouge storage...." this happens when i try to close programs , when i try to open a program or even to open a browser. therefore, i need to restart my computer everytime and then it works fine for a day or two.....
i have plenty of space in my hard disk.
i tried several things that i read but it doesn't help: i used registry booster program but, in vain....
i really don't want to format my pc now.

what can i do to solve this problem?
i am thankful for any advice!

Go to Start and type in "diskmgmt.msc" (without the quotes) and press Enter
Once in Disk Management, check each and every disk for free space. Most likely you'll find a disk that's full.

If this doesn't work, then post back and we'll try more stuff.
