I know that if you want something simple that compares to iMovie for Mac, you can get Movie Maker for Windows. I would never suggest that to anybody because I could rarely complete a film in Movie Maker back in the day because it always froze on me.
Anyway, if you are interested in starting to edit, what I did as a beginner was get a software called Corel Video Studio. It was easy enough for me to get the hang of as well as do the things I wanted it to do. Eventually I upgraded to the Final Cut Pro studio and Premiere Pro from Adobe. But Corel was a very nice piece of equipment for me starting out.
I wouldn't recommend Sony Vegas, it's not user friendly. It's really hard to deal with. I always love my Final Cup Pro, but it's much too advance for anyone just starting out in the editing world. If you plan on using any advance software Final Cut Pro is the way to go because of the ease of access and tools. It's the fastest thing I've ever edited on and I've used hundreds of video softwares.
