Converter & Downloader Recommendations?

Hi Everybody :-)

I just had two quick software/website questions.

1) Is there any free (or inexpensive) software that can convert .AVI files into .WMV format? (even better if it can go the other way as well).

2) Is there any reliable software/downloader or a trustworthy website that can download videos off of YouTube (no worries: I have the user's permission)? I've seen various software and websites such as this: but I'd prefer using one that others have used so I don't get into any trouble with viruses/spyware/malware (I've had several nasty infections on this computer and I don't want to go through that ordeal again!).

Thanks so much!
