Control Panel> System> Advanced> Performance-Settings> Advanced> Virtual Memory> Change.

Sometimes the amount of primary memory installed (RAM) is inadequate for a new application (software program). When this occurs the user receives an “out of memory” error, and the application fails to launch or play. One solution for this is to use the hard drive as additional RAM. This space on the hard drive is known as Virtual Memory. You can modify the Virtual Memory here. Bump your virtual memory up to its maximum allowed setting. It will tell you what the maximum and minimum settings should be. However relying too much on virtual memory (bumping it up too high) results in the entire system slowing down. Be careful-experiment.

For a more permanent solution – add more physical RAM inside your computer.
