Will most of XP programs work on Windows 7 Home Premium?

Home premium doesn't have "XP Mode|", but you can still use XP compatability thingy, am I right?

Also, i don't play games at all on the computer.

I use firefox, word 2003, itunes, etc

Yes, win 7 has an xp compatibility mode. Most but not all will run. things like really old, proprietary apps, games might not.

Depends on the age of the game. If its an old DOS game then you could try DOSBox.
