I am looking for a good, legal, non-limited MIDI editor/composer. Can also be in other formats. Can anyone help me?

You didn't mention free, but if you want a fairly cheap one, I suggest you buy Mozart. Its pretty cheap compared to other software. (Around $180)

If you want a better program, I suggest Sibelius or Finale. If you just buy Sibelius (without the PhotoScore) its cheaper than Finale.

Thanks, but I'm looking for something free. Something like GarageBand, except for Windows, would do. What are people using?

There's not a bunch of free MIDI editors.

There's GUITAR PRO wich is cheap too, but you can have a free trial...

I have the full version and for now, I'm completly satisfied.

I'm not sure if you have heard any of my midi files, but I recomend Music Notation Composer. I've used it for years and believe it to be the best. It is a bit expensive, around $160. I always believe you should say a little more to have the best. I'll give a link if you're interested.

I love using Anvil Studio and it's free.

http://anvilstudio.com/

There are more advanced features you could buy, but the free version itself is still very good.

Thanks, but I've switched to Mac. I still welcome suggestions though. GarageBand add-ins, perhaps?

Finale NotePad is free and unlimited. (thats the program they used at camp and its pretty decent). I suggest trying it if you want something free.
