To play against the current computer shogi champion for free, you will first need to download and install the free program called shogidokoro,(right click the shogidokoro link, then click 'save target as' or 'save link as' depending on your browser to download the shogidokoro software, the downloaded zipped file should be 1.41mb, if not, use internet explorer which is more reliable)(see my previous blog entry),then also download GPSshogi (the current 2009 champion).
Double click the' setup_gpsshogi_20090526' file to run, then on shogidokoro click game, then Engine manager, then add, then my computer, then double click the main drive you have which should normally be' C:', then double click ' program files', and there find the folder called' gpsshogi'.If your computer's RAM is under 4GB, then double click single,(otherwise smp) then double click gpsusi.This should add the engine to your list for you to play against, or get it to play against other engines.
