Most of the tools you need are available in Windows ports. ogr2ogr is
available on Windows at http://fwtools.maptools.org/ and so is Postgis
The only problem is with osm2pgsql.
If you're looking for UK data then there are old versions of the SQL
available at http://nick.dev.openstreetmap.org/downloads/planet/ that
mean you don't need osm2pgsql.
You could also make yourself a virtual machine running Debian and use it
for extracting OSM data, after all Debian is free but the learning curve
is a bit steep.
