How about using Windows Movie Maker? I haven't try working mpg in it yet, coz usually I used AVI in it and then convert its wmv output into mpg using TMPGenc. But it is the only program that I know who do wmv. And it's free. Though a bit unstable.

I'm with gobi on this one - although a trawl through Google throws a long list which appear to do the job, but it seems you have to pay for most of them!
