Font management for PC running Windows 8

Finally upgraded to a new PC recently at work and need to grab some font management software. Old PC was running ATM. I'm a Mac guy so I'm not really too familiar with the Windows environment, but got charged with that task. What are you guys using that you would recommend?

A Mac.  ;D

But honestly, I don't even use font management on Mac anymore. Just the indesign font folder or font book if the folder is acting funny.
