Default Prime95 Version 24.13 Error Writing Files

Right before my eyes, I just lost all work on two partially completed LL exponents: 29014421 and 26177761. The first LL exponent, 29014421, was within 3 hours of completing .

The last few error messages displayed on the Prime95 window are:
"Error writing intermediate file: rT014421
Error writing message to results file:
Renaming intermediate file qT014421 to pT014421.
Error reading intermediate file: pT014421

Error writing intermediate file: rT014421
Error writing message to results file:
Error writing intermediate file: rT014421
Execution halted.
Chose Test/Continue to restart."

I suspect that this might have been a transient Windows XP problem as I got other error messages about other Windows applications failing due to lack of resources, etc. during the time that Prime95 was writing its error messages to the Prime95 window. Also, Window Task Manager refused to start when I pressed Ctrl Alt Delete during my efforts to halt Prime95 execution.

Even with out a re-boot, every thing now appears to be back to normal. Task Manager works normally, my internet dial up software works normally, etc. I am at a loss to explain what happened. This computer has 1GB of physical memory and 10GB of unused disk space available to it, so lack of resources should not have been a problem.

Any ideas guys and gals?
