My camera records videos in .mov format, what can I use to edit out the audio and lower it's size in a Windows environment?

Note that .mov is just a container. What you're really looking to do is change the compression. A QuickTime video file (.mov) can have any number of different codecs used to compress it. – Josh Nov 12 '11 at 18:12
@Josh Thanks for the tip. – Oxwivi Nov 12 '11 at 19:21

You didn't mention whether you're using a Mac or Windows, but...

You could use a tool like MPEG Streamclip to change the format of the video, or strip off the audio. Works on both Mac or Windows.

I use a Linux-based OS, but this question applies to Windows users, thanks! – Oxwivi Nov 9 '11 at 18:45
