Arne,
I've had this problem myself. The problem is usually that Stata wants to create a temporary file, and the systemwide temp directory is getting full. If there is only 37mb free on c:\, I would clear out a bit in the temporary file directory. There is a "preserve" buried in qreg that will sometimes want to write a temporary file.

The temporary directory has a tendency to fill up when you kill a Stata-session that has an open temporary file - the gigabytes add quickly if you have large datasets (when you are also more likely to kill a session because it is completely stuck).

Best regards,
Erik.
