I have a virtual machine installed on win 7 and it keeps telling my I need an AV program. Is this true? I have MSE installed under win7 and wonder if I really need an anti virus on the VM?
Depends on what one is doing in the VM. It's kind of a variation of the more general question of whether a machine needs anti-virus. It's possible to run AV on both or neither.
Is there anything you do on the VM or save on the VM that you want to protect?
