    i have an HP Pavilion dv5 Notebook PC (uses Windows Vista)
    and i've been having fits over my Windows Movie Maker acting up.
    i've made lots of videos over the past few years and have had no problems.
    Recently though, when i try making a video of any kind, (wmv format) it seems like WMM is lagging and then when i try to play and watch what i've put together/edited it will play a second or two then glitch and will even skip whole clips during the glitch/freeze and it does this through the whole timeline. i dont know if it will run like that if i publish it but i cant get any decent editing done because i cant really tell how well it syncs or looks because of all the glitching. this has gone on for several weeks now and is absolutelly maddening! i've tried everything from un-installing unnecessary programs, deleting cookies..etc, change setting..etc. nothing works and i cant find anything on any site about this issue or how to slove it.
    (if i could afford a decent video editing software id use it instead and not have to worry about this.) :p
    any help would be GREATLY appreciated!
    thanks!

    Are you using the WMM that comes with Vista or is this the Windows Live Essentials WMM? If not the latter, I think you are eligible for it with Vista and you might try that version. Otherwise there is Pinnacle VideoSpin which is free and you might find does as much as you need without having to pay for a more capable editor.
