    Hi Peter, I was on usenet and it seems the problem is concerned with that.
    The details are thus:

    Configuration:
    Account: news.individual.net
    Server: news.individual.net
    User name: ********
    Protocol: NNTP
    Port: 119

    You've already been chastised for giving no useful information, so I'll
    just add that the odds are pretty good that you were running a program that
    had a bug. The bug is in that program, not in Windows.

    Yeah and it isn't related to a memory overrun, it's just your config for the
    news server.

    It's not valid info for the issue you are relating to us.

    The application that's failing is Microsoft Windows Live Mail
    14.0.8050.1202??
    Is this correct?

    Hehe, you're in trouble now ..

    I Googled, as I've not heard of this one before.
    According to this:
    http://help.lockergnome.com/windows2/attempt-allocate-memory-failed--ftopict489574.html

    it might be a corrupt file.

    This one is a tad old:
    http://www.pcguide.com/vb/archive/index.php/t-58819.html

    Come to think of it, all the information seems old.

    Most mention not enough disk space.

    I am sure the experts here will find a solution :)

    Hey retard: You didn't post any information. I suggest taking a break from
    heavy drugs. Go outside and wax the cat.

    It's probably individual.net's fault. Try Eternal September or AIOE.org.

    Oh boy, the blind leading the blind.

    It almost certainly WASN'T related to the Usenet server she uses.
    Usenet client, maybe, but she hasn't provided any meaningful
    information so even that is just a wild guess.

    I did see it, but only after I posted the above. My newsreader doesn't
    automatically update, so the burden falls on me to do it in a timely
    manner. Clearly, that's a mistake on the newsreader's programmers' part :)

    As others have said, what you posted is not actually relevant to the
    problem.

    I think a repair installation is in order, or a System Restore, or fsck.
    Oops - wrong OS - I meant chkdsk.

    Or maybe my original idea: you are running a program that contains a bug.
    Sorry - I should have said "programme" :)

    Based on your information provided later in the thread it "seems" like
    your problem might be WLM.

    Try this.

    Download and install Thunderbird, then come come back to usenet using T
    Bird as your newsreader. If that solves the problem the offending
    program is WLM. Next step would be to back up your WLM files, uninstall
    it, then do a reinstall of WLM.

    If that does not solve the problem it's possible you have a bad RAM module.
