Being picky on the meaning of the word "installing" to a Windows machine, you 
may try putty. It works via ssh, but *does not* require to be _installed_ on 
a Windows machine. You just need to copy it to some directory and run it. No 
install wizards, no changing registry, nothing regarded to installing. After 
you're done, simply delete it.
