Why don't you try "Windows Live Photo Gallery". It is the souped up version of Vista's Photo Gallery click here
You could also try Picasa click here but I have to say that I personally don't like it as much as Live Photo Gallery. Try both and see what you think. When you downloaded Adobe you got Photoshop Album SE which is good for basic edits and organizing, anyway try them all and see which one suits your purpose. J.B.
