I have used Moviemaker for two years and like anchor have not experienced the problem that you refer to. I used to use Pinnacle and then Ulead but for ease of use Movoemaker is more user friendly. There must be something wrong with your program as I have Moviemaker on three machines and have not experienced your problem on any of them. I think it is a very good program. It is stand alone and you should download another copy if you find Power Director not to your liking.
Due to what I suspect is a codec problem I have not been able to use Moviemaker for some time ... however I do recall there is a option to bring in the sound track from your next clip a second or so prior to the clip appearing, like they do on TV. On some PC's I understand this can cause a problem.
