If the Video files DON'T need editing i.e. take out the Ads. Use DVD Flick
click here
It's a Free Program.

If you need to edit the video, Vista Movie Maker (?) should be able to do that, Can't say for sure, Not got my vista PC up and running at the mo.

Paid for programs I know that will Edit & Burn are,

Ulead VideoStudio 10, 11, 11.5 & 12.

Nero V8.

Roxio Easy Media Creator 9 & 10.

Burning media of any type requires a lot of processing power, from looking at your specs you have a fairly low end dual core chances are that is were your system is going slow.
