Video editing is not easy, remember, you are dealing with professional software when you look at Vegas. Windows Live Movie Maker is about as simple as it gets.
But, windows movie maker that comes with windows 7 is S***!.
Google or youtube Windows Movie Maker 6 if anything, it comes with a installer and is community made because the windows 7 live crap movie maker is horrible vs it. Movie Maker 6 came with Windows Vista, one good thing "yes that is right" Vista had.
If anything, you could get the Trial "30 days" version of Camtasia 7.1, it is pretty user friendly and quite powerful at the same time. It is professional grade, but not for hardcore video editing.
However it is a trial, not free. Yet is overpriced as fffu, but is best for what it does is screen capture and self editing.

Look up tutorials on youtube for Sony Vegas 11. Thats what I did
Rollback Post to RevisionRollBack
I built my own computer in 2012, Specs are: Intel i3-2100, Amd radeon 5570, 8GB of ram, 500GB Hard drive, Antec One case, Z77A G43 Motherboard, OCZ 600W PSU. Windows 7 64 Bit.
Also I have a youtube channel https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCc9Bi9r4UPZbAWyuRKBJeoA
I like to play games on steam like Garry's Mod and robocraft.
I originally thought that with Sony Vegas 11 too, but give yourself some time. It's not all that difficult after you get used to it. Or if that doesn't work, try looking up some tutorials on YouTube. Oh and for the person who suggested Virtualdub, I think you got this wrong. He was looking for a "Simple" video editor, Virtualdub is as confusing as I'll ever get.
