We all know Windows Movie Maker is poorly made software that crashes and doesn't do much. I've looked around the internet but have never found a good editing program thats free. Do you guys know of any good free video editing programs like iMovie for Windows?

Actually, Live Movie maker isn't that bad. Keep in mind you get what you pay for and that it's free it's an improvement over the old movie maker. Whenever considering any Microsoft product hit a site like Cnet (http://wakoopa.com/software/windows-live-movie-maker) or my favorite Wakoopa (http://wakoopa.com/software/windows-live-movie-maker) However, when reviewing critiques look at the review date and version number, Currently @Wave 4, Live movie maker is quite a deal. True the earlier versions were lacking but I find the new version quite useful, PCMag gives it 4 out of 5 (http://www.pcmag.com/article2/0,2817,2366352,00.asp) also an excellent and frequently updated site for all things Microsoft is http://www.winsupersite.com/win7/wlmm.asp
I prefer reading aggregate reviews after seeing video of the features in action, tossing out the worst bile and the perfect glowing reviews and deciding with the middle consensus. Also, remember that most people are jaded towards Microsoft, although they've been churning out a ton of free and cool stuff people still hate on them. Go figure, their loss.
Hope this helps.

Actually Movie Maker isn't that bad, IMO. If you are running XP, you've got the best version of it already. If you are running Vista (and 7 as well, I think,) you can download Windows Movie Maker 2.6 from Microsoft. Here's the link: http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?displaylang=en&FamilyID=d6ba5972-328e-4df7-8f9d-068fc0f80cfc

I think I read somewhere a while back that VLC was making a video editing program. ... Here it is: http://lifehacker.com/5432946/vlc-team-working-on-a-cross+platform-video-editor http://trac.videolan.org/vlmc/
