I've been running the same 9.2 version of STATA on my machine for the past 2 years. This afternoon I started receiving the "op. sys. Refuses to provide memory" error message.  However I permanently maxed all of my memory settings about a year and a half ago (see below), and the data set I was working with today was not exceptionally large compared to what I've worked with in the past.  In fact even attempting a simple regression on the auto sample data produces the same error.  Should I simply try and reload STATA?

use "C:\Program Files\Stata9\auto.dta", clear
(1978 Automobile Data)

. reg  mpg price
