Hi Liz,

a. When do you get this pop-up message? Is it while opening any application?

b. Do you get any error code as well? 

This error message indicates that too many threads or processes are running. Hence we need to free some threads or processes. Hence do not run many applications at a given time. 

Refer this link for more information on this error:

Error Message:
