I used audacity for recording (not from cassette though), it's a nice tool. Even has instruction on their site.
Excuse my poor english.

If you only intend to capture the sound from the line-in input of your soundcard, then even the basic recorder in windows can do it. But if you want to edit it a bit, audacity is a good freeware tool to do it.

I've been using it for years, not for editing, really simple to use to recorder, Kat MP3 Recorder.

+1 for Audacity. It's easy to use yet pretty powerful, and is perfect for quick and simple recording and editing. And best of all it's free

A few years ago I used Goldwave to capture LPs. Back then it had many good restoration features.
