Stata is using more memory than is physically available on your computer. A clear indicator is constant, prolonged disk access during the execution of a command. What you are seeing is Windows using virtual memory to make up for the lack of physical memory you have requested.
Possible solutions include adding more memory to your computer or moving to a 64-bit machine.
