Not many options, possibly VLC?

Windows 7 has native support as far as I know.

VLC doens't work for blu-ray and Windows 7 DOESN'T have it native unfortunately.

I've done my research a few weeks ago and there's no free blu-ray player software yet. The price of the licenses that allow a program to play blu-ray is so much at the minute that there's only a handful that do it and they all need paid for. Should be some free ones in the next year or so hopefully.

I use Cyberlink PowerDVD 9. Works great but isn't free.....at least not legally.

Most drives come with software to play bluray, what drive have you got?

unfortunately, most drives come with reduced functionality software. For example, it may play the blu-rays but there won't be HD sound and only in stereo.

Win 7 has native avchd support, which is what makes up a bluray disc. So you wont get any of the features, but you can still watch the movie.
