Updating the BIOS is a very risky proposition and should only be done if there's a specific problem that's addressed in the list of fixes that the flash was made for. Even then, there's a significant chance that you may hose your mobo.
Since the system worked fine without a BIOS update - why would it need one now? Usually a BIOS flash is needed when you add some new hardware that wasn't compatible with the original BIOS. Is this the case?
I'd suspect that this was either a rogue program, a piece of malware, or insufficient pagefile space. In case it's something that slipped by your scanners, try this free, online scan as a double check: http://safety.live.com/
If that comes up clean, then try opening up Task Manager and going to the Performance tab. Then, open up one of the programs that gives this error and watch the PF graph. Does it show that the pagefile is fully utilized?
If it shows a sudden surge to full - then switch to the Processes tab and double click on the CPU column header. Then try loading the program again to see what programs start taking up a lot of the CPU.
Then try double clicking on the MemUsage column and loading the program to see what programs start hogging the memory.
Finally, you can click on the View menu, and then select "Select Columns" and check the "Virtual Memory Size" check block. Then repeat launching the program to see how the Virtual Memory behaves.
