Resources is nothing to do with the amount of memory.

There are a finite number of "heaps" (pointers in a table) for resources in Windows 9x.
When they are all allocated, you have a resource issue.
Some software does not correctly release them when a program closes.

Also if programs get corrupt they can report resource limitations, even when the resource table is free.
