    Depending on the operating systems most come with a video editing program. I know that Movie Maker and Windows Live Movie Maker are free for windows and some people dont like them but they should do the job, and if you are on Mac (Which I doubt but cant remember) iMovie is a beast and would be awesome.

    depends what you actually want to do for an edit.

    movie maker etc are very limited in what edits you can do

    If it's just basic things, would be fine

    Have a crack at Movie Maker.

    Ive seen people churn out some great work with it, Better then what I can do with far fancier programs.

    I also consider the vast majority of the features you pay for tend to be basic ******y that only serves to detract from the video.

    Yeah I'm with Metla, Movie Maker is free and easy and basic and has a very small learning curve. Free is the big one
