Hey look at the first result on Google: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/2795190

i saw it but apparently:
Applies to

Windows Vista Enterprise
Windows 7 Enterprise
Windows 7 Service Pack 1
Windows Server 2008 Enterprise
Windows Server 2008 R2 Enterprise
Windows Server 2008 R2 Service Pack 1


and nothing about xp that i found.

also, the "extra" solutions they suggest for clearing space like disabling hibernate etc. don't really help with the main problem.
