You won't get much help from Microsoft on this one, but
I was able to solve a similar problem by increasing the desktop heap from
3MB to 8MB:

Interesting links! Thank you for posting, James.

But damn Google Groups-Beta for breaking our old links!

Now whenever we hit an old &selm= Message-ID
it looks as if we are going to have to enter the new Advanced
search page, cut out the Message-ID from the &selm= parameter,
and do a Message-ID search for it.

Doing that with Kevin Dente's "_one_ of the responses" link
yields this new one:

http://groups-beta.google.com/group/microsoft.public.windowsxp.perform_maintain/msg/b38415e6fe7fd6ce

which is Davorin Mestric's original solution. You can see the
original thread by clicking on its (red) title:
Where/What is the "Resource Meter" in XP?
Etc.
