Thank you for your reply. Which one would you suggest to use on a netbook running Window 7 Starter with 1 GB of RAM? – kiamlaluno Aug 17 '10 at 21:22

You could try out VirtuaWin ( ). It's pretty lightweight, opensource and also a portable application. (and yes, despite not beeing mentioned on the projects frontpage, it's also working on Win7.
