    What software program would be best to use for this?

    Photoshop, Paintshop Pro, etc.

    However, if the picture is blown out... there might not be enough data to
    recover and give you decent results.

    Unless you have no control over the camera, the best solution is correct
    exposure in the first place. Other than that correcting via Gamma is most likely
    the best solution. This is assuming that the image is digital in the first
    place, and not a scan with washed out highlights.
    As to software there are a number. Photo Impact, Adobe Photoshop or Elements,
    Paint Shop Pro, or many others.

    If the pic is overexposed, you very well might be out of luck. When
    working with digital, underexposure can be corrected much more easily
    than overexposure.

    If the whites are really 'white', that is there is no level of whiteness
    greater than what is showing, then nothing can be done to correct that shot.
