I have a pc which functions on Windows Vista home edition and it doesn't provide a fax program. I would like to know if there is any fax program that is LEGAL and free in which I can download.

Thanks in advance

I believe it is included:
Instructions

Things You'll Need:
Phone modem
Windows Vista
1. Connect your computer's dial-up modem. Check that your phone line is securely connected to your computer.
2. Click the Vista "Start" button, select "All Programs," and then select "Windows Fax and Scan."
3. If you haven't sent a fax before, the Fax Setup Wizard will appear. Follow the on-screen instructions to set up your computer to send and receive faxes.
4. When the fax program opens, click "Tools," and in the dropdown menu select "Fax Accounts" and click on "Add" to complete the process of establishing the fax. connection.
5. To send a fax, select "New Fax" on the toolbar and enter a recipient and fax number when the window opens. The "To" field in the fax window is linked to addresses stored in Outlook or in the Windows Address Book so it can easily retrieve your contact's fax number and enter it in this field. Manually enter the name and number if it's not in the address book.
6. Enter your fax message, then hit "Send." You've sent a fax in Vista.

There are plenty of free-online fax services as well. Most will let you fax up to 3 pages for free. I recently used one and did confirm the recipient got the fax.

I used this one. http://www.gotfreefax.com/

You upload the document you want to fax, select your coversheet if you wish, and off you go. Great for the once or twice a year faxing that I need to do.

Windows Fax and Scan is included only in Windows Vista Business, Windows Vista Enterprise, and Windows Vista Ultimate.
Windows XP Home Edition on one of my computers has a fax program.
Start-Programs-Accessories-Communications-Send a Fax.
