Open /etc/security/limits.conf file and change the existing values for "hard" and "soft" parameters as follows:

* hard nofile 65535
* soft nofile 4096
* hard nproc 16384
* soft nproc 2047 
 
Restart the system after making changes.

If, on the other hand, after changing the values mentioned in the post above you still get an error, try checking your computer for any possible errors. Use a disk utility application to check the system. For a much thorough diagnostics on the system, use a disk utility application like PC Tools Performance Toolkit, Norton SystemWorks, or Norton Utilities.

If after checking the hard drive the result is negative, try scanning your system for possible virus infection. Update your antivirus then run a full system scan on your computer. You may also try doing a disk cleanup on your system. It is possible that a corrupted temporary file is affecting the system and is causing this error.
