How to read QR Codes without a smart phone

by pk941 / October 15, 2011 11:38 PM PDT

I do not have a smart phone but would like to read QR codes using my desk top. How do I do this? I have done some research and I know I have to take a picture of the QR code but I can not find a reader. Are there any websites where I can upload the QR code and it will tell me what it says? Is there any software, preferably free, that I can use?

Thanks
