    Is it possible for Movie Maker to over ride the audio from my movie with a
    music track? I've put music tracks in my movie but the audio of me talking is
    playing at the same time... how can I make it stop? any ideas?

    Not sure exactly what you want to do, so some general information.

    1. Change to timeline view. Where you see the little plus sign (+)
    click on it.

    2. You now should see multiple tracks, one for the video, another for
    transitions, audio PLUS another for audio-music and one for

    If your source file contains both a video and audio track this
    automatically will take up two tracks in timeline view.

    To mute any track, right click on it. Then you can add fade-in and
    fade out effects, totally mute the track or adjust the volume.

    If you wish to ADD a music background or narration, first import that
    file then drag it to the track not occupied from the video's audio.

    Now play the project and if you've added an additional audio track you
    should hear it plus the original sound track both playing at once. By
    right clicking on either you can either mute one or both or adjust the
    volume of either. Once you render the project the two audio tracks get
    merged into one.

    Keep in mind Movie Maker is a entry level application and very limited
    in what it can do.

    If you're ready for the next step a very good and totally free
    application that will help you do way more with audio is called
    Audacity. If I get feedback I'll explain in more detail why you may
    want it and some of what it can do and why it is important if you want
    to advance on your journey to making better more professional videos.
