Windows 7 is on mainstream support until January of 2015, so that means IE11 will be released for Windows 7

I'm not so sure about that.
Hi there
It's actually VERY HARD to access a VM if you set something like HOST ONLY networking (an option in VMware workstation) -- that way the rest of the network is unaware of the VM's existence - it will only be seen on the HOST.

If this is STILL a matter of concern then you don't even need to connect the HOST to a network or the Internet so contamination of the VM will be almost impossible.

For the typical applications that the VM is being used for I don't really see "hacking" or Virus infections as being of any consequence whatsoever - especially if the VM is essentially running very specialized legacy applications on ancient hardware which might have been around long before the young hacker was even BORN. !!!

Cheers
