Firstly I would prefer to complete this task on a mac but i am willing to use windows.
Can anyone tell me how to remove edges of a video that i do not want.
I have had a look around and the best answer to this was to use a black picture to cover the edges up, but this will not center the video.
You can do this with any professional NLE. In Sony Vegas the feature is called a Pan/Crop tool, in Adobe Premiere, just resize or move around the video in the frame so as to leave out the unwanted parts. Or as you said, move a black solid over your unwanted parts.
plan "B" (addendum to advice already given) would be to use compositing layers to add a nice border (think picture frame) around your video clip, then reposition your video clip to fit nicely in the border!
Thanks for the suggestions
