VLC is an excellent (FREE!) product that I've been using for many years:
http://www.videolan.org/

It has all of the codecs built in. It supports AVCHD (which is what I think you meant...not ACVHD) and here's an interesting article that discussed how to convert AVCHD with VLC:

Do you mean AVCHD
Do you have windows 7?
Then you can use the inbuilt Windows Live Moviemaker, it's free just ensure you install the codec ffdshow mpeg4

I easily added a MOV file taken with my JVC camcorder and some high-definition MP4 videos from an AVCHD camcorder. Windows Live Movie Maker 2011 my preferred version supports M4V, WTV, MOV, AVCHD, MPEG-4, MT2, and 3GP.

I found it very good for a lot of things not everything but for simple edits and good effects converting it to HD WMV. Then a quick way to publish to youtube.
If you have installed windows essentials you have it

To illistrate  it here is H.264/mpeg-4AVC on Gspot to show
Test video in GspotDropped it into WMM in one sec it loaded and plays fine
Playing in WMMThen go to file save movie for.
Whatever you hover your mouse over will show the aspect ratio. You can also save as High definition
it will save as HD WMV the size will be reduced to under1 gig and less 600 megs from a 3 gig depending on the video scale. Very nice quality
save movieanother option
