Virtualbox for sure. MS Virtual PC, 2004 and 2007 were free, id imagine new versions have come out

Indeed, if you have Win10 Pro you can turn on the Hyper-V role/feature and use that as well

In my experience, the network interfaces are a bit clumsy for normal VM use in Hyper-V. It's not terrible, but it's a bit of a pita to get a NAT connection going IIRC. It's the same interface as Hyper-V installed on a server as a pure hypervisor though.
