I get this error on occasion, usually when syncing.  Anyone know what causes it?  I always choose Retry, then I get another error window and the program crashes.  Typically I just restart core and it works just fine again.  Thanks.

try with a new wallet, otherwise you might re-dl the whole blockchain

This is a fresh install with a fresh wallet, and I am re-dl the whole blockchain, that is where this issue happens as I said in the first post.  It happens while syncing (i.e. downloading the blockchain).

I will give that a shot.  Seems odd to me that Bitcoin Core would need more VM than any other program I have ever run, never needed to up the pagefile size for anything.

Doubled the page file, errors persist, so no thank you I guess.

Mikestang, what your OS? 32 bit?
try run with  -par=1  -maxconnections=4 -dbcache=4 (Only at the time of initial synchronization, then you can run without the parameters)

32-bit WinXP.  It's almost sync'd now, <10 weeks to go, so if it's not finished when I get home I will try this, thanks.
