Windows 7: windows xp mode is not protected

windows xp mode is not protected

There is a balloon saying that my computer is not protected by any firewall or anti-virus software. I have anti-virus software on the window 7 side do I need to install something else on here? Also do I update windows XP as usual in the virtual mode? I have 33 updates for it. I am using the XP mode now even as I type this.

Thanks for your help!!

Well, a VM much like a physical machine should have an antivirus installed. Each instance is separate from one another. I'd recommend installing Microsoft Security Essentials on your virtual instance of Windows XP.

Thanks!! So I guess I also should update the XP side too. I downloaded and installed the Security essentials and it will not conflict with the trend micro on the 7 side correct?

That is correct. As Darician said, XP Mode is like a totally normal, individual computer on your network. It needs its own AV protection and Firewall, which don't have to be same than on other computers in your network.

Hit the nail right on the head there.
