You can't enlarge images from their original sizes without losing quality. No software can do that.

I see them do it on CSI all the time.
One time they were able to use an image from a cell phone camera and zoom in on the picture to see a reflection of a license plate on someones sunglasses and it was super clear zoomed in about 10,000%.

^ lol. try faststone image resizer, it also depends on the quality and type of image you are trying to enlarge as to how it comes out.
enlarging a photo that has been scanned will not produce a decent result, but a digital image that you enlarge should be fine.(depending on the quality of the file.)

Photoshop CS series - Get a plug-in called Genuine Fractals that works very well - Link: http://www.ononesoftware.com

ImageEnlarger http://sourceforge.net/projects/imageenlarger/ which is a SourceForge project. The member who originally suggested this app said he's taken an 800 x 600 image and increased the width to 1280 with amazing results. You have to play around with the Sharpness, PreSharpen, and DeNoise controls a bit.

Photoshop Elements (poor man's CS5 - ie me) using good interpolation. Gimp for even poorer men may be ok?

Obviously nothing will create information but it's all about viewing distance and human perception of the image.
