Is there a PS / DVI / PDF all-in-one viewer for Windows?

I thought GhostScript would be able to do this but I wasn't able to open DVI files. (Admittedly I have no understanding of these file formats.) But even trying to open a PostScript file with GhostScript, I can only seem to view the first page of any document. (Unless the files themselves are corrupt or of an odd format?)

Gratis preferred, but paid considered.

You may try Evince. Unfortunately, I'm not sure about its capabilities when run on Windows. But it advertises itself as

a document viewer for multiple document formats. [...] Evince is specifically designed to support the file following formats: PDF, Postscript, djvu, tiff, dvi, XPS, SyncTex support with gedit, comics books (cbr,cbz,cb7 and cbt). For a comprehensive list of formats supported, see Supported Document Formats.

And someone created Windows binaries, albeit they seem to be little outdated.

DVI is an intermediate format when creating postscript files from latex source. You might want to consider installation of a complete latex distribution like miktex (http://miktex.org/), which includes all necessary viewers (i.e. in particular Yap for viewing dvi files)
