Try Ghostview for windows. It is distributed under the GNU license, so it is
basically free. It uses the Ghostscript interpreter, so some special characters
may not be displayed correctly, but it is very useful all the same. It can
also convert postscript to encapsulated postscript, and add an EPS preview
in several formats, so you can import postscript files into programs
such as Word for Windows, without losing quality when you print them out.

You should be able to find it with archie/xarchie.

Hope that this helps,
Peter.
