Having 100s of megabytes of some brilliant Win95 freeware, I’d love to find a good, safe way to run them on my Vista and Win7 computers. Wondering if anybody had any luck with it previously? Also found “The Microsoft Application Compatibility Toolkit”, any good?

If you still have a copy of Win95 installation CD and a legal key you could install Win95 in a virtual machine running under Vista/Win 7 using, for instace, Oracle VirtualBox.  You could then install and run all your old programs on this virtual machine.
