I think this is not the problem with your system. Maybe you have issue with paint brush?

Does the problem happen when you open a specific image or just when you start the program? I was writing a program that created images from business data and I was computing the file size incorrectly(the file size was way to large) and paint would give me the same message when I tried to open the image.

The memory in question is referring to your workmemory (RAM), the place where your computer holds the data it's currently working with.
If you have lots of applications open at the same time, the RAM might become full, leaving no space for new ones to be opened. It might also be possible your computer just doesn't have enough RAM in it to run your application (you can test that by closing as much as possible before opening Paint Brush, and also try opening it with a smaller image). No worries if you don't have enough RAM, it doesn't cost very much to get more put in at the computer store.

Building off of what Yarr has already said, you might have a lot of apps that load when your PC boots up that you don't know about. Check your system tray an do a CTRL+ALT+DELETE and open the task manager to see what you have running.
