Does anyone know of a good freeware application where I can convert a full VOB file into a MPEG file. All of the applications I have found are trial versions and will only convert a part of the video.
I just need to convert one VOB, do not plan on using it long term.

VOB files are already in mpeg format as described on wikipedia. You can just rename them to .mpg. You might need to set windows to "show file extensions for known file types". If you copied this file from a DVD that used some sort of encryption (most DVD's do) you will first have to decrypt the DVD using tools described on doom9.org.

VirtualDub used to be the de facto standard for converting video files. It still does an admirable job.

Handbrake does a great job - although the GUI is not the most intuitive, it is a very powerful program. The fact that it is also cross-platform is a bonus.

I think that Avidemux can fit your needs.
Here's a recent how-to to convert your .VOB file to AVI (remember that AVI is just a container) : Avidemux VOB to AVI
