    I have got a fast comfuter with much disc space and 2 GB RAM.
    And it crashes very often :(

    Only this application? How many crashes do you tend to get in general?

    Also: 2 GB of ram is not enough to do much video editing well in any case. 2 GM is the minimum you need to run Windows Vista/7 and surf the web while listening to music and doing the books effectively. If your looking into movie making, look into 4 or more GB’s in order to run smoothly.

    Mind, running smoothly is a different issue than not crashing. There’s more to the story. With low RAM you’ll just lag as your material is paged to the harddrive and is slow to re-access. It shouldn’t cause frequent crashes.

    Although, one problem that i’ve seen on a few windows machienes running intensive applications: if the section harddisk Windows is paging to has errors, then crashes will be frequent as windows is unable to re-access the paged data.

    Moving making is one possibility. The real litmis test is: Does your comptuer tend to crash while under heavy load in general or only while making movies. If it crashes under heavy strain period, then it’s possible it’s a harddrive problem. If not, then it is something to do with movie maker itself and a new program is adviseable. I also advise finding a free disk scanning utility (window’s native scan feature sucks) and check that way. Sometimes a solution is to isolate bad sectors and partition them off so windows dosn’t use them. If you tend to crash under heavy strain period and not just making movies, then more RAM and a disk repair utility seem to be called for.

    My computer crashes very rarely. Almost never. Wax is the only program that crashes like that.

    My computer has a 6.0 GB RAM and Wax has never crashed. Then again, I usually never render anything longer than 5 seconds. (You’re asking for it to crash if you try to render something like 3 minutes long.)

    Yes, but it did not freeze. Difficult to explain.

    Did it have some kind of error screen that said “crash” or something like that?

    No, but the video clips on the timeline followed the mouse.
    Sometimes it freeze when i try to apply an effect or add a clip to the timeline.
