Windows 7: Which Windows Movier Maker works for Windows 7?

Which Windows Movier Maker works for Windows 7?

I user to have Windows Move Maker, but after a clean install, I don't have it anymore. I heard that 2.6 would work on Windows 7, so I got it. It doesn't look like the one I had before, but I tried it anyway, and I can't help but notice that it's a bit slow, especially when I'm saving a movie. Also, when I searched it, I found the one I had but it was labeled as 2.6; is that a mistake, or did I dl the wrong one?

So this may not be the one I had before I did the clean install.

The one I had looked like this:

And what I have now looks like this:

I want to get the one I had before; is there a way to get that one? Also, if there something way better and free, let me know and I'll check it out.

PS Yes, I have Windows 7, and I have Windows Live Movie Maker. But no, that one sucks; it is so bad. I just want the one I had before.

EDIT: I think it was called 6.0; if thats true, where I can dl it. And do I have to uninstall the one I haver before I do that?

Sure. You can PM me the link

Do I need to do anything else to make it work, or will just installing it be enough?
