Antivirus in XP mode

Hi,

I am kind of afraid to ask this because it maybe a very stupid question. If I have Virtual XPM, I imagine I need to use it with an antivirus with Xp and another for W7. Or, could I use the W7 when I use XPM. Is it possible to install Norton internet security in XPM and scan W7?

Thanks

You have to install an AV on both system.
The XP under XP Mode is a separate environment. Each system need it's own AV.

Win7User512, just saying he's wrong about all 7xxx Core2's supporting virtualization. Some of them do support it just fine.

Allan,
From what I see your laptop has a Intel Core 2 Duo T7200 processor. I looked on Intel website it they are showing the Intel Core 2 Duo T7200 processor to support:
Intel® Virtualization Technology (Intel® VT)
Intel® 64 Execute Disable Bit

Looks like you qualify.

I am going to load this up tonight and see how it goes. I am interested to see if I can load Activesync 4.5. It would then allow me (hopefully) to flash my Winmobile with new ROM's from this PC and I can look at converting the laptop to Windows 7 as well then.
