If you decide to try the virtual machine again I'd recommend the subforum dedicated to it:

Virtualization - Windows 7 Forums

Like most things, it's a pita to set up the first time. Not so bad after. I always end up taking them off after a couple of weeks. Guess I have no real need of it. The time it came in handy was running a Netscape appliance on Linux so that I could run Windows media plug-ins to play stuff in the browser. Back then the stuff didn't work seamlessly like it does now.

Hi

System virtual machines

See also: Hardware virtualization and Comparison of platform virtual machines
System virtual machines (sometimes called hardware virtual machines) allow the sharing of the underlying physical machine resources between different virtual machines, each running its own operating system. The software layer providing the virtualization is called a virtual machine monitor or hypervisor. A hypervisor can run on bare hardware (Type 1 or native VM) or on top of an operating system (Type 2 or hosted VM).
The main advantages of system VMs are:
  • multiple OS environments can co-exist on the same computer, in strong isolation from each other
  • the virtual machine can provide an instruction set architecture (ISA) that is somewhat different from that of the real machine
  • application provisioning, maintenance, high availability and disaster recovery[2]
The main disadvantages of system VMs are:
  • a virtual machine is less efficient than a real machine when it accesses the hardware indirectly
  • when multiple VMs are concurrently running on the same physical host, each VM may exhibit a varying and unstable performance, which highly depends on the workload imposed on the system by other VMs, unless proper techniques are used for temporal isolation among virtual machines.
Multiple VMs each running their own operating system (called guest operating system) are frequently used in server consolidation, where different services that used to run on individual machines in order to avoid interference are instead run in separate VMs on the same physical machine.
The desire to run multiple operating systems was the original motivation for virtual machines, as it allowed time-sharing a single computer between several single-tasking OSes. In some respects, a system virtual machine can be considered a generalization of the concept of virtual memory that historically preceded it. IBM's CP/CMS, the first systems to allow full virtualization, implemented time sharing by providing each user with a single-user operating system, the CMS. Unlike virtual memory, a system virtual machine allowed the user to use privileged instructions in their code. This approach had certain advantages, for instance it allowed users to add input/output devices not allowed by the standard system.[3]
The guest OSes do not have to be all the same, making it possible to run different OSes on the same computer (e.g., Microsoft Windows and Linux, or older versions of an OS in order to support software that has not yet been ported to the latest version). The use of virtual machines to support different guest OSes is becoming popular in embedded systems; a typical use is to support a real-time operating system at the same time as a high-level OS such as Linux or Windows.
Another use is to sandbox an OS that is not trusted, possibly because it is a system under development. Virtual machines have other advantages for OS development, including better debugging access and faster reboots.[4]

gigabyte, if you want to try Virtual Box (vBox), you could have a look at the tutorial a wrote up a long time ago. It is actually very easy to set up and if you want to delete it you just get rid of a folder.
Installing in a virtual partition .zip - Windows Live

Just download and unzip the folder. This was written at the time for win7 Beta. But it applies to all systems.

Not necessarily since your virtual box is isolated. Its settings doesn't affect your real environment. So it's up to you. Do anything you want. You can mess it up or whatever.

I had a look at your tutorial : thanks for the work.

I have a problem with the Virtual Box program which I use to run Linux systems to do some secure home banking. I desparately try to get access to an USB stick but don't know what I do wrong. I tried to activate the stick via this small USB button but no success.

Any step-by-step hint ?

Once you install the OS in the vBox, then you can operate is like any OS - install programs, updates and AV. It may be a good idea to install MSE.

Because of the uniqueness of this browser, I have asked around about it before just installing it. Is it a good choice for Win 7 x 64 and easy to learn? I am asking about the free one.

How can I get Sandboxie installed on a 64-bit system? I do not have the trouble with driver signing as I have DSEO which overrides that. The problem is the installer won't run on a 64-bit system (it explains the error message). Does anyone know how to or a substitute program?
