Windows Virtual PC - Do I Need An Antivirus?
I have NIS 2012 (v220.127.116.11) installed on my Win7 Pro x64 laptop and it is working fine. It is a 3-PC license and all 3 installations are used. The remaining 2 licenses are installed on other WinXP desktop PCs.
I have Windows Virtual PC - Windows XP Mode installed on this laptop to run some older programs. This is also working fine.
My question is this - do I need a separate antivirus program installed in the Virtual PC XP Mode? If I have internet activity going on from within the XP Mode VM, does that internet traffic go through NIS which I have installed on Win7, or do I need an additional antivirus program installed within XP Mode?
Thanks for any guidance.
