Windows Movie Maker isn't supported any more and hasn't been in ages.

You want Windows Live Movie Maker.

This is one designed for lower end system, and it's been reported to also work in windows 7.  This issue you are having is widespread. many have used the older version I've pointed you to with success.

I agree. The answer, which  i did state but apparently not here, was to roll back the ati video drivers to version 10.2 or 11.1, problem solved.
I apologize for failing to answer in the correct place.
