Can anyone recommend a free comic book reader (for the .cbr format) for Windows?

CBR is a RAR format. You can simply rename the file with the RAR extension and use any RAR uncompresser. There is an open source comic book reader CDisplayEx that some people use.

That WP link is broken, use instead. –  Harley Oct 4 '10 at 3:21
not that bad. What I don't like: if I press DownArrow, the page scrolls down to the middle of the page, and that's too low... –  Natrium Oct 31 '11 at 14:40

An alternative is ComicRack. It has lots of features (besides .CBR support), though at first it may seem a bit overwhelming. YMMV.

I tried ComicRack, but in my opinion, it was buggy. –  Natrium Oct 31 '11 at 14:15
and you need .NET-framework 4.0 for this –  Natrium Nov 3 '11 at 6:49

I like Honeyview. Honeyview also has a portable version.

Disadvantage: Honeyview takes about (10 * size_of_cbr_file) MB of RAM while running...
