System resource notification messages in SolidWorks 2010

We were upgraded to SolidWorks 2010 last week.  I never had this issue with SolidWorks 2009.  Ive been getting this message daily after using SolidWorks for about 6 hours.

 

"SolidWorks has detected that your system resources are running low.  It is recommended that you close some applications to free additional resources"

 

My machine has 12GB of RAM and a 2GB Quadro 4000 gfx card, 64bit WinXP.  I did receive a similar message on my old computer, which only had 4GB of RAM running SW 2009, but the problem was "fixed" with the new computer.  I am running the latest "certified" drives from SolidWorks website.   I dont even come close to using 1/2 of my system RAM, so Im not sure why this message is popping up.

 

Any ideas/suggestions/comments?

 

Thanks.
