What applications are you running at the time you "run out of memory"?
How much RAM is installed and how much VIRTUAL memory is selected? (advanced system settings)

As often as not those low memory errors are not what they seem. It might be malware so I suggest that you run these two freebies in the order given. If there is any malware about they usually unearth it:-

AdwCleaner:
https://www.malwarebytes.com/adwcle...
Download and "Save" the file somewhere. Go to the saved file then double click it to run the program. Run the "Scan", followed by the "Clean & Repair".

MalwareBytes:
https://www.malwarebytes.org/
(use the "Free Download" button rather than the "Buy Now" button).
After the install go to "Settings > Protection". Under Scan Options move the "Scan for rootkits" slider over to On and Run the Threat Scan. Quarantine anything it finds.

If either of them find something please copy/paste the associated logs on here.

Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks

Sometimes restarting the computer fixes this because applications are holding onto memory locations without cause.
It is however very likely that if restarting does not fix this, you probably have malware wasting your system resources just for starters. In this case, it will get worse quickly.
The final possibility is you have too little memory installed for the type of work you are doing and there is also too little virtual memory set which might help offset it (though slower).
As noted, run the above recommended programs and report the resulting logs back in your replies (copy/paste). Then give us the asked for system specs for a more detailed evaluation and help.

You have to be a little bit crazy to keep you from going insane.
