Eagle (CadSoft Online: EAGLE Layout Editor) has a good library of components with both Euro and US style symbols. Free download, basic limited capability is free to use. Plus when you're done with the schematic you can do the pcb layout (free version is limited to 2 layers, 100 x 80 mm area)

gEDA also has a very complete package library.

gEDA can be found here:
gEDA Project's Homepage
unfortunately you will have to search SourceForge.net: Find and Develop Open Source Software to see if anybody has made a windows port of gEDA

links to free design software and many open source designs can be found here:

I use QuickCad, and made or modified my symbols. It is OK for standard electronics, but I had to do some that match old British auto schematics. Ya, know, maybe it is because of my age, but 99% of the time I use paper and pen with my old Pickett templates. Some of the greatest circuits in history were done on the back of an envelope.

Download ExpressPCB/SCH. The schematic editor is very good, for a FREE piece of software. If that is all you want to do is create a schematic, you're done. It has most symbols built in and missing ones are easy to create. Whether you ever convert the schematic to a PCB is up to you.
Attached schematic was created by ExpressSCH. The PDF was "Printed" by CutePDF, another nice program.

if you follow Bob Pease's "Pease Porridge" column, many of his designs started out on the backs of envelopes, etc...
