I need a google friendly blog capable of running on Windows. So that means Wordpress is out (I think) - can anyone throw me a bone?

Wordpress will run on Windows. It requires PHP and MySQL which both run on Windows.

Sandpete, I setup a Wordpress blog on a Windows server and after a lot of effort fooling with isapi_rewrite it is now search engine friendly and works great.

If you go with Wordpress, do check out this thread from our Hot Topics section:

Many hosting companies won't install ISAPI filters for you on a shared hosting account. isapi_rewrite is a must-have requirement for Wordpress on IIS with proper SEO in mind. (IMO it's a requirement for proper SEO on any IIS server.)

So if your hosting soltuion doesn't/can't/won't support isapi_rewrite then WordPress on IIS is a bad choice if you're hoping for decent search engine listings. You're better off finding a company that's familiar with WordPress on Linux/Apache. It will most likely be cheaper too.
