    Download VirtualDUB http://www.afterdawn.com/software/video_software/video_tools/virtualdub.cfm

    open the avi file in it and click video - compression. Depending on the codecs you have installed there will be a list of compression options on your left. choose one and click ok. Click file - save avi. A very handy thing now is that virtualdub gives an estimate of the output filesize so if its to big you can cancel and try another compression.
