I was a professional programmer for over 30 years mostly COBOL. In my last 10 years QBASIC was a big part of my duties in helping to fix COBOL programs that were downloaded to the PC. I was really disappointed that when I updated to Windows 7, Qbasic would not work. I guess Windows 8 would be the same thing. Is there a way to use Qbasic on my computer without destroying it for every thing else?

Install a virtualization software (like VMware, Virtual Box, Virtual PC) and run a previous version of Windows in your Virtual Machine.
If you have Win7 Pro, Business or Ultimate, you can use Windows XP Mode, which is a custom Virtual PC that run XP only with minimum configuration required.
