Kernel insufficient resources: The problem described in this article is difficult to identify. One way to check for the problem if you suspect you are experiencing it is to calculate the number of files open on the Window NT-based computer, and look at their size. If you have approximately 180 GB of open files that are not being closed continuously or are opened and closed rapidly in a looping condition, you may be experiencing this problem. Also, your programs may be receiving an INSUFFICIENT_RESOURCES error message when attempting to open, create, or extend a file. For more details, see Q192409
