"!MEM FULL!" is displayed when malloc returns NULL, meaning there's no
more memory available to Emacs on the system.

So the first thing to report is probably memory-related information,
starting with what the Task Manager or Process Explorer report about
the memory used up by Emacs vs what's available on that system.

The information reported by Sysinternals' VMMap would probably also be
of value.
