Download an EXIF reader, like exiftool: http://www.sno.phy.queensu.ca/~phil/exiftool/

Take a photo and transfer it to the computer.

Open the photo with exiftool or your EXIF tool of choice. The number of actuations should be listed as "shutter count" or similar.

Sorry... it does not work. I tried some other similar softwares i.e. Panda IEXIF but I could not find there either. HAs anybody tried any software that shows shutter counter information of the image with K-5

It does work, at least for the DNGs I shot with my K-5. See below for example output from exiftool.

exiftool requires PERL libraries. Probably why it failed for cem.

The exiftool Windows executable version does not require Perl.

BTW, Jason: You should update to the most recent ExifTool. There have been MANY new K-5 decoded since version 8.37 which you are using (65 new Pentax tags since then to be exact, most for the K-5, including cool things like the level sensor angle measurements). And more to come, so stay tuned!
