I am developing a simple 5 page website using wordpress (webmatrix)

I need to add a carousel to the home page with 3-4 images.

Please assist in locating a simple 3rd party tool and instructions on install & implementation.

I did try a few 3rd party tools that i found via google, and i was unable to implement any of them.

thanks,

There are tons of tons of carousels and sliders available for WordPress but carousels and sliders are different beasts and you need to clarify which one you want.  Assuming you really do want a carousel then in terms of absolute simplicity you may want to try Jetpack:

If you want a slider, different story.
