How to get back the old Movie maker in Windows 7
Now you will ask, why would you want the old version when Windows 7 has a newer one to offer !
If you have installed the new version of Windows Live Movie Maker, you will find that features like timeline & audio edits have been removed along with the ability to overlay text on a video, along with a few other changes; with a view to simplifying its operations.
But those of you who want the old version back may simply download and use it from : Download details: Windows Movie Maker 2.6

They advertised their "new" WMM here ( Making movies is getting a lot easier - Windows Live ). You may want to read thru the comments. The users (including myself) are appauled. I wonder whether they will use any of the inputs. This is a typical case where a development group is funded beyond "end of life" and they have to find a justification for their existance. I have seen that too often in my 35 years of software development life.

Thanks Andy personally I love the old movie maker as it was easy to use and I'm going to download this as I have a project in mind.

Thank you so much for this link. I preferred the older version myself.
One of my favorite sites is OldVersion.com, their motto being "because newer is not always better". My other fave is OldApps.com
On that note, I still prefer Acrobat 6, which in spite of the "so-called" compatibility issues with Windows 7, runs beautifully if you tell it to run it anyway.
The "experts" aren't always right.
