Get the thesis out!

I that advice about re-installing the OS sounds like a Windows person  
to me. Not that it is never needed, just that it is very rarely needed.

The log file is the one produced by TeX when it runs (and runs out of  
memory). If you are compiling thesis.tex then it would be names  
thesis.log and be in the same directory as the thesis.tex file.

Good Luck,
