I write accounting software reviews for Accounting Technology magazine this time every year. (This year's covered several different versions of Peachtree, MS Office Accounting Professional, QB Pro and QB Premier, MYOB, and Simply Accounting.) MS Office Accounting Express is definitely free and may be adequate for simple bookkeeping at the level Rick may need. It tends to like using MS Office 2007, but that's not an absolute essential as I recall.
