One you will already have installed is Windows movie Maker - my son uses it all the time to edit movies he makes on runscape instructions exactly as you requested - works perfectly. Have a look at These instructions (http://video.google.com/videosearch?hl=en&q=edit+with+windows+movie+maker&um=1&ie=UTF-8&sa=X&oi=video_result_group&resnum=4&ct=title#) The 1st top Video shows you exactly 9 minutes. ( it should load from the link provided)

Hint: Before doing any editing, make a copy of your movie first, just in case something screws up.

you can use videora ipod converter which will convert any video format to mpeg,

very simple to use, clear instructions

I dont think it can save in mpeg. Even tho it can load it.

Its either WMV or if you have a DV cam, send it back to the cam after you edit it

If you want to convert it back to MPG download tmpgenc (http://www.tmpgenc.net/en/download.html) - its free, follow the prompts through and it will re code it back to MPG format.

Note: when you browse for the File, from the bottom Drop down box "Types Of Files" Select " All files" to locate the WMV other wise it wont pick it up
