    1. had you used movie maker before with no problems
    2. look at task manager, what else is running when you are running movie maker?
    3. does movie maker not have a save button?
    4. is the version the latest that will run on xp
    5. could be bad codec or bad video driver
    6. movie maker files might be corrupt and have to be reinstalled.

    To reinstall the Movie Maker:

    NOTE: You must be logged on as Administrator or as a member of the Administrators group in order to perform this procedure.

    1. Click Start , click Run , and then type the following command:
    %systemroot%\inf

    NOTE : There are no spaces at all in the preceding command line.

    1. Click OK to open the INF folder.
    2. Locate the file moviemk.inf
    Right-click the file, and then click Install . This will reinstall the files that Search needs to proceed normally.

    You will be asked to place your windows XP cd rom in the drive.

    This is almost impossible to solve because there could be so many things, even hardware related. One thing I have found which is an obscure issue but solves many problems is a slow disk. Our disks may be working fine for handling day to day tasks but when it comes to reading larger files they no longer perform as well. I came across this when I had constant CD burning and rendering problems. I changed many parts and even capacitors and it turned out to be bad disks, which were fine for running the OS but not enough for serious applications where hundreds of mb had to be I/O . If you have older drives this may be a source of problems.
