MAIN QUESTION: How can I correct the problem with these videos and restore the quality of the video back to its normal settings?

Lets start from the beginning: I own a Canon MiniDV camera. And it runs on tapes...not clips. So the videos are imported in one big file, composed of many clips. They are imported as AVIs.
I've had many problems in the past exporting from WMM to be capatible with FXHome FxLabPro, but I've fixed that. By changing the settings in WMM from NTSC to PAL. Which somehow worked. But there's a catch: what's important is that all of a sudden (last week or so) did all of my video files on my computer seem to appear interlaced. They also had their black bars reduced in size. Even when I imported new video clips, the lines, and bars don't look like they normally did. Could this be a problem fixable by simply going into an options tab or something?
PS: Axeman and Tarn, you probably don't remember me, but I was the one who poasted the "Exporting from WMM [Windows Movie Maker]." forum.

IMPORTANT NOTE: I think that I've fixed this problem; The AVI Files were only affected by the interlacing and black bars, but the video files that I've imported that are WMV do not become affected.
So from now on, the only thing that I need to do when importing a video is mark the file output format as: WMV. You can still respond to this forum if you please. But I've fixed the problem as far as I'm concerned.
