To get the original Starcraft and Broodwar to work on windows 7, all you need to do is register your key with a battle.net account, and don't use the CD's to install, instead go into the battle.net account management and download the client instead. The client version and the patched CD version are slightly different, and the one you download has several Windows 7 fixes in it, like the messed up colors, which is fixed if you download the client instead of using the CD.
I still play this game on my Windows 7 Home Premium 64 bit system, if you have any questions feel free to ask.
