4Gb. IntelliJ IDEA works fine and Chrome with 10-20 tabs also. Freezes appeared even when I installed Skype. When Skype was installed freezes disappeared. – Fox in socks Jun 16 '12 at 15:26

A Wubi system's performance is not as good as when you do a complete install. I too used Wubi for quite some time. It gave me similar nightmares. Better to do a complete install, also update your system, most of the problems won't exist.

P.S. How much Ram you have? Any graphics card?
