Windows OS?

Windows process are limited to 4GB per process on 32-bit systems but 2GB
is reserved for the kernel so each process really only has 2GB to play with.

You can increase this to 3GB per process using the /3GB switch in
boot.ini but there are side-effects you might not like. Google for details.
