Best bet would be to prepare the images
before importing them into Movie Maker.
Use an image editing program to crop
the images to an aspect ratio of 4:3.
If you need a program for the task...the
following freebie has a good crop tool.
FastStone Image Viewer
Once you have FastStone downloaded
and installed you can open your image
in the program and go to...Edit / Crop Board...
(there's also a crop button on the toolbar)
On the Crop Board screen, you will see
a button below the image with three dots
on it...if you click it you will see a menu
of sizes to choose from. If the size you
need is not present, you can add it. Then
click OK. Now you can left click/drag the
corners of the selection box to frame the
portion of the image you wish to keep.
And you can reposition the box by
dragging the 4 way arrow.
When you are happy with the selection ...
click the Crop button.
Now...File / Save As...choose a save
location / enter a name / click...save.
