If you have a fast connection, try the trial of Nero to see if you get the same result

What systems have you got? eg. RAM, CPU, Hardrive, Operating System.

also are you able to find out what type of file it is? eg avi with divx codec, or MOV.

You might have a damaged/corrupted video file, or a video file that uses compression that really bugs windows movie maker. Does it work with other files, or is it crashing no matter what file you use?

its hard to tell what might be happening, does it give a specific error message or just close? is there something you do that makes it close everytime (e.g. press a specific button in the program), or is it at random?
