There are number of free programs out there which should do the job (but as I don't have a Nikon I can't test this properly).

I use IrfanView to browse images (it can also do a bit of editing as well as conversion) and it advertises NEF compatibility. It is available here and don't forget to download and install the plug-ins available here.

EDIT: I have just tested IrfanView and it understands D80 NEF files. You can set up a Windows file association. If you want to use the File/Open menu then you need to select "DCR/DNG/EFF/MRW/NEF/ORF/PEF/RAF/SRF/X3F - Digital Camera RAW Format" in the "Files of type" listbox before you can actually see the NEF files listed. They aren't there when you select "All supported Graphics files" in that listbox which appears to be a bug. Once open you can convert them to JPEGs as you desire.

FastStone Image Viewer is apparently another option if you don't like IrfanView.
