Simple software to do a single task

I am looking for some very simple software (preferably cheap) to do a simple task. I need to load a few .avi clips on a timeline, load a title which will run during all the clips on a concurrent track, and burn the whole thing as MPEG to A DVD. That's it. No editing, nothing else. Can someone suggest a product?

Thanks.

I don't think WMM does the DVD burning, but Nero does everything you need.

Thanks Adam,
WMM does burn DVD but it only has a single video track. Turns out that Premiere Pro (my usual software) burns DVDs without going to Encore. I'll look at Nero, though for simplicity.

Correct, Movie Maker does not encode to MPEG2, but Windows Vista Home Premium and Ultimate come with a "Windows DVD Maker".
