Multiple of our boxes are continually getting the below error message related to Electron causing the computer to be low on memory. Rebooting the box resolves the issue but that is only a temporary solution. We have these boxes set to reboot once a night and are still getting this throughout the day. It appears to happen at random where some get it 3 times a day and then don't for a week.

Any recommendations on what to do here?

The first thing I would do is open the Task Manager on the Display while Windows is running, to see if your memory is at a dangerously high level, which I suspect you may discover it is.

If you are running on a 64 bit OS, the good news is you can throw more RAM in the machine, and that will hopefully solve the issue. If you are running a 32 bit OS, and you are maxed our at RAM (4 GB's installed will use 3.89 GB's of RAM), your best bet would be to upgrade to a 64 Bit OS.

Another option, if possible, would be to remove any new content that you may have added to your Presentation that started this message showing in the first place. It's possible that content is just too much for this machine.

Let me know how you make out!
