I know you said you dont want to download anything but if you want to record and edit get audacity (http://audacity.sourceforge.net/download/windows) its free and is really good I use it all the time.

If you want to save your recording as an mp3 you just need to get the LAME file (http://audacity.sourceforge.net/help/faq?s=install&item=lame-mp3)

I really recommend this.
