There are lots of 'em!

Popular seem to be Irfanview, and Picasa.

One called the Gimp is said to have capabilities that rival Photoshop in a lot of ways.

Someone on these forums said that you can find an older version of Paint Shop Pro as a free download.

For free versions of noise-reduction programs try out Noise Ninja or Neat Image.

If you are into shooting RAW, try out UFRaw. Raw Shooter Essentials is another good one, but I'm not sure if it's still available.

Another free one is FastStone Image Viewer.

FastStone and IrfanView are great browsers, but their editing capabilities are limited and crude.
Having said that, IrfanView supports PS plugins, but of course you have to pay for them.

The Gimp rivals PS in features, but AFAIK only operates in 8-bit and is rather slow.

By far the best free editor is Picasa.

By far the best free Raw Converter is RS Essentials. It is available until LightRoom v1.0 ships.
