Does the CS3 extended version of Adobe photoshop work on computers running Windows 7 professional? I purchased it to run on an XP system which recently died. My new Dell computer has Windows 7 installed.

CS3 wasn't design for nor extensively tested for use on Windows 7. That said, it should install and run fine. You can install it to make sure it works well enough for you with any hardware and drivers that you regularly use.

Photoshop CC was designed to run on modern systems and OSes. The cheapest way to upgrade to Photoshop CC if you choose that route is here: https://creative.adobe.com/plans/offe...
