Faststone,a free editor has ability to download most raw files,also a pretty good and simple to use editor

Fastone is free, portable (can carry it around on a USB stick), speedy, useful. However, last time I looked at it, it read the embedded JPEG in the raw file, not the raw file itself for thumbnails. There may be a setting to force it to read the data from the raw file itself.

Competitor products with different behaviour (free) are Picasa, Windows Live Photo Gallery, irfanview, xnView.
