ISO images are single file images of a CD or DVD. They contain all the contents including the file and folder structures of CDs or DVDs. Windows 7 natively supports ISO images and you can burn and create ISO images. But if you want to perform advanced operations on ISO images, then you might be interested in ISO Workshop. ISO Workshop is a free utility that can help your extract files from CD or DVD images, convert between different image formats like ISO, CUE, BIN etc., create new ISO files and burn an existing ISO image onto a physical CD or DVD.
You can download and install ISO Workshop from its web site at GloryLogic. The download is only 1.7 megabytes and in an installable setup format. During the setup, you are offered to install the Ask Toolbar which is not needed and you may skip installing it. After installing it on your Windows system, you can start using it right away.
