Re: out of memory
well maybe thats because you do not have enough memory on c:\ drive. try saving data in another drive. because for the memory allocation etc., the system uses the available memory on C: route too!

Re: out of memory
You can buy 1GB memory for about 20-30 $ today. It will probably solves your problem and also allow you to refine your mesh, if need.
