    I started geting this message a few weeks ago....when I want to install any software, I get this message "No more threads can be created in the system", and won't let me install. I tried deleting "Temp" folder, but no luck.

    After I restart my computer, I can install everything.

    Help :)

    There is bound to be something in use in the %temp% folder. Try just deleting the contents (you should be able to delete most).

    try going into safe mode and deleting the contents of both temp folders. In safe mode whatever is there running might not be loaded in a minimal set up

    Maybe so. :) My first reply was just to address your attempt to delete %temp%. The best I could find about the error message is that you may simply have too many processes/threads running or else one of your applications is starting threads or sub-processes and not ending them properly. I am attempting to summarize this thread from another forum.

    If you only have the issue after running w/o a reboot for several days I doubt that you have a serious issue to worry about.

    I also don't think it's serious, it's just annoying....I am downloading something, and want to install something, then it won't install, I have to restart, just annoying :)

    sorry it does show next to your name, but when i ran the utility on mine it didn't show everything correctly so I just wanted to be sure.

    A couple of maintenance thing that I would reccomend is to do an error checking on your hard drive(s), to make sure there are not any corrupted dll files and such that could cause the type of errors you are getting. Then defrag all volumes.

    After that is done I would open the task manager and go to proccess's, while in proccess's click on the cpu column so that the programs using most cpu cycles are on top in one spot and you can look at them. While nothing is happening the system idle should be using up most of your cpu. While task manager is like this try to install a program and keep an eye on the most used proccess's during the install. This could give us insight into what is taking up the threads and such.
