Try Irfanview.

Irfanview is good, and pretty easy to use. It doesn't have the range of settings, though, to give you very much better results than the camera will produce using jpeg. Unfortunately, raw developing software which does create superior results is not terribly easy to learn. If you want to take the trouble, Raw Therapee is free and very good.
