If you install Winamp Lite and disable features you don't use in the installer, you'll end up with an install that's identical to Winamp 2.95 and actually more efficient. It might use a touch more RAM because it is using Unicode internally (2 bytes per character instead of 1), but it should be a drop in the bucket compared to how much RAM you require for Windows 7. If you're using the media library, it'll use a little more RAM than 2.95. But the media library is literally orders of magnitude faster in a modern version versus 2.95. My 60,000 track media library takes >30 seconds to show the UI on 2.95 and about 1/4 second on 5.7
