Movie Maker and annoying green bar

    When I use Movie Maker to process an XVID file and it then calls DVD Maker,
    the resulting DVD has a green bar across the lower-half of the screen. When I
    use Movie Maker to convert the XVID file to WMV format, the resulting .WMV
    file has the green bar, too.

    When I launched DVD Maker manually and added the same XVID file myself, the
    resulting content did not have the green bar. So this appears to be a problem
    with XVID files in Movie Maker. The *menu* on the resulting DVD, however,
    *does* have the green bar. Once the Play link is pressed and the content
    begins to play, however, the green bar disappears. I'm not sure what is
    causing this; could the menu creation feature that DVD Maker uses be hampered
    by the same problem that is causing Movie Maker to generate the green bar?

    Does anyone have a suggestion on how to:
    a) get rid of the green bar from the files that Movie Maker generates?
    b) get rid of the green bar from the menu that DVD Maker generates?

    If you haven't found out how to get rid of the green line yet, I'll
    tell you. Once you've made your video in WMM, got to tools in WMM and
    click on options. This will open the filters. Take the check out of the
    box beside XviD. I had this same problem and this fixed it for me.
