Can anyone suggest a simple OCR software that will work with Windows 7 and Internet explorer 8?

There are free web based services which will do OCR for you. Just send an image file to them and they send back the text.

OCR is nothing to do with Internet Explorer, it's for changing a Scanned Image of Text, back to editable Text. When you scan Text it's a Image as like a Picture, so you have to use OCR to change it back to text so you can Edit it.

OCR is Optical Character Recognition
