OCR software that works with Vista

Can anyone help me and recommend an OCR program that I can use with my scanner with vista. The one that comes with the scanner does not have the correct drivers and I would have to upgrade to the current version at a cost of £50.

For me the cheaper the better or even free so is there any recommended programs to use?

You could try SimpleOCR 3 which I am told works with Vista and is free.

ABBYY FineReader 8 works with Vista and it is really accurate.
