    If all you want is a basic video trimmer then you could even get away with a simple muxer and output it to a few seperate files, or something like AVItrimmer:

    Take a look at some of the files here as well.

    However while a lot of what I do can be considered simple video editing (it certainly fits your definition if you add transcoding and remuxing) I like avisynth and either megui or virtual dub for even basic video editing.
    I suggest playing around with virtual dub, it can do what you want and be barely more difficult to use than a word processor. It will also work for when you learn/want to use some of the more advanced video stuff (filters and the like).
    Also if you input your video via directshow, using either Virtual dub mod or a simple script and you have a completely free editor capable of converting and messing around with just about every video file in common use.
    If you want a quick guide to this sort of thing post back and I will throw some screens and a bunch of text explaining it all together.
