You don't need any extra software to make a simple recording.

Start - Programs - Accessories - Entertainment - Sound Recorder

will do it.

Connect the mic - click the red button - and talk.

Excellent step by step guide; click here

The problem with the built in sound recorder is that it's limited to 60 second clips. Use the setup instructions posted above and then record with Audacity or RecordPad as posted.
