You are lite on memory... especially if you want to do much work with sample based VIs. 16GB is widely considered a starting point. You might well get away with this if only doing simple stuff/getting started but just remember for future, memory is cheap and often a great upgrade. The other gotcha can be disk, and without a Sandra report we have no idea what storage you have, hopefully on a fairly recent computer you have some nice fast SSD to record to.

Sandra Lite is a Google search away, unsure why you can't find and install it. If you stick with Pro Tools you'll want to get that working so you can get other help here or from Avid support. But it's not actually relevant to your current problems, which are really more about you learning stuff than issues with the computer.
