I've googled and googled and googled, but I can't find a decent FREE windows video editor. Does anybody know one?

For basic editing there is Virtualdub. For effects, I'd go with ZS4 or Jahshaka (the latter is my preference).

It's a bit too basic, sorry. –  Joe Oct 27 '09 at 12:42
I wasn't done :) –  John T Oct 27 '09 at 12:43
@Joe, the link for Jahshaka is broken. You may have to use www.jahshaka.org –  Stat-R Aug 18 '12 at 20:17

blender is able to load, edit (as in cut and blend different streams, and mix with sound) videos. see here:

Imaging and Compositing

* Complete list of composite node filters, convertors, color and vector 
  operators and mixers including Chroma Key, Blur, RGB Curves, Z Combine,
  Color Ramp, Gamma Correct
* Preview panel to define the portion of interest. A composite then only
  happens on this part
* Near realtime sequencer can edit hours of video
