The best recommendation is PuTTY
http://www.chiark.greenend.org.uk/~sgtatham/putty/

When you setup your putty session though, go into the Terminal options
and check Use Background colour to erase screen, otherwise YaST and
other ncurses programs will have odd black sections showing through.

Another useful tool is WinSCP http://winscp.vse.cz/eng/ which is an
Explorer-like scp file manager.
