Do you know what "emfinv " is? Have you run any malware scans?

Low virtual memory errors occur for several reasons:
- too many programs open that require virtual memory
- a misbehaving program that doesn't release the virtual memory when it's done with it.
- a pagefile that's set incorrectly (or corrupted).

EDIT: There's more than this, but these are the most commonly seen
