No Free File Handles

I've been getting a strange and fatal error within windows recently.
Windows suddenly jumps immediately to DOS giving the error: 'No Free File
Handles'. I've set the files=40 command in config.sys, but this doesn't
seem to be the problem. Somehow, when a file handle is no longer used,
it's not being reset?

I've searched the web FAQs to no avail...can you help?

Thank you for any help,
