Windows 7: Not a BSOD but rather annoying "Out of Memory"

05 Nov 2016   #1

Windows 7 Professional x64 SP1
Not a BSOD but rather annoying "Out of Memory"

As of late I've been getting some annoying errors with trying to start Visual Studio and Windows Media player as well. Sometimes, and this happens everyday, I will try to launch VS and I get this weird error saying "Out of memory". Not only that, but Media Player is also showing the same issue as well; except it will say "server execution failed". I tried doing this but it makes no difference. After 5 or so minutes, the issue subsides & I can open VS normally again. I tried everything, I removed & re-installed, I looked a the event viewer, I got nothing. I have 12GBs of memory, most of the time I never see the usage go higher than 30%.

Even if everything is closed, I can get that error easily, but I do not know why.
