Encountering a problem with Windows Movie Maker locking up after I import a video. Hourglass sits on screen for an indescribable amount of time. This occurs whether I used wmv, avi, or any other allowable file format.
Windows Movie Maker on Xp locks up after importing videos

Does this article help? "file size" could be an issue on Win XP as well as possibly breaking the isolation generally needed for safe operation of Win XP operating Systems.
it applies to "opening" as well as saving.
Try it again using a win 7 or win 10 computer and see how you get on.

Could you explain to me what is meant by "breaking the isolation"?

As you know the Windows XP operating system is unsafe to use without taking extraordinary precautions, including total isolation not only from the Internet but also other sources of data.
If Win XP is totally isolated then there is a great deal less concern.

Am I to understand that while i am working with Windows Movie Maker that no other programs should be running including any networking. I assume antivirus programs that run in the background should be paused.

No that' s not what I'm saying, although it can be a good idea to have no other programs running whilst you are creating/editing videos, so more of your computer's system resources can be devoted to the task in hand.
You need to keep your anti virus products running (although of course these will not provide you with an appropriate level of protection when using Win XP)
