4GB of RAM should be enough to do strait editing. I’ve never heard of having 4GB of memory and having on 2GB free. If your computer needs more memory, it just tosses out old data to make room for the new data. I could be wrong though.
I would try reinstalling your software first.
Also, are you mistaking “memory” with “hard drive space?” Some people do that. Check your hard drive space as well. Ideally, you don’t want to use your computer’s internal hard drive unless you have more than one internal hard drive. The reason for this is, if your computer crashes and you have all your video files saved to your main hard drive, you’ll lose everything. And that’s no fun.
