1GB free. physical or virtual?
I know why I insist on 8GB physical memory in my computer: so there is no 
problem doing eclipse, gimp, webserver and sometimes a virtual machine [¹] 
at the same time.
every time the OS needs swapping, your computer will run in slow-motion.
Either you stop all other programs for the big task or it will take very 
long time while all active programs rival for the physical memory and the 
CPU is busy doing swaps for the OS.

I think you need an expert for windows-server (or php on windows?)
or a good virtual linux-server?

[¹] windows in virtualbox under ubuntu runs very smooth :-), 
windows in 'Virtual Machine Manager' under fedora works like in a 
honeypot :-(
