I am using ROXIO to:

  1. copy DVD file to my computer
  2. trim a section of the video
  3. convert the file to WMV and this is where Windows Vista gives the message that the program cannot continue.

I have followed all of the instructions from ROXIO support to clean my system and do a new install. It still does not work.

How can I resolve the problem?

Could we have some more info on what means "It still does not work"? Error messages, screenshots etc. – harrymc Nov 2 '09 at 18:04
Screenshot. Soulds like DEP fault. Check for a newer version of whatever program you're talking about. – Ian Boyd Nov 2 '09 at 21:23

If you don't -have- to use Roxio, try imgburn - I use it, it's free, simple, and works well. Roxio shipped with the machines we use at work, and I did find it to be somewhat unreliable.

VirtualDub is a good video editing tool

VirtualDub is a video capture/processing utility for 32-bit and 64-bit Windows platforms (98/ME/NT4/2000/XP/Vista/7), licensed under the GNU General Public License (GPL).  It lacks the editing power of a general-purpose editor such as Adobe Premiere, but is streamlined for fast linear operations over video.  It has batch-processing capabilities for processing large numbers of files and can be extended with third-party video filters.  VirtualDub is mainly geared toward processing AVI files, although it can read (not write) MPEG-1 and also handle sets of BMP images
