    I need to know what OS you are using first (Xp, Vista). Since I don't know what OS you are using, all I can do is guide you the best way I know how.

    If you are using Xp and need to update your Windows Movie Maker, click the link below:

    If you are using Vista, click the link below:

    Aside from doing that, I would suggest manually checking your Windows Updates. Sometimes, when people do a system restore on their computer, the automatic updates are not installed and need to be re-installed manually.

    To see if your automatic updates have installed successfully, click Start, Control panel, System and Maintenance, Windows Update and Check for Updates. This will check for all windows updates. Install the ones marked Important. Also, look in the View Update History to ensure your automatic installations were successful. Failed updates need to be re-installed!

    I hope I didn't confuse you more with this answer. Instead, I hope I steered you in the right direction to get a fix for your WMM.
