    There's really no "standard" avi codec and usually editing AVI's is a giant PITA. What you can do, but it's not an NLE solution by any means, is use something like VirtualDub and just cut out the parts that you don't want and then join back together. I believe there's also a program that ships with Windows called Windows Movie Maker. In my experience, almost all of these "editing programs" that come bundled with the OS are really very poor (with the exception of iMovie which is excellent).
