I recommend you to use the free download version of UCInet (http://www.analytictech.com/downloaduc6.htm). UCInet is easy to use and the functions are kind of intuitive if you have some network analysis background.

To easily get a drawing, follow the menu Data>Import from spreadsheet>DL to upload your data, and then open your file with Visualize>Netdraw.

you can also try Pajek (http://vlado.fmf.uni-lj.si/pub/networks/pajek/), which is also free

both programs come with very useful and easy to follow instructions,
