post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
I am going to run a wins 7 in a wins 7 by VM, and I need to make sure even there is virus in the win 7 VM, there is no way it can get through to the host wins 7. Anyway to do so while I need to let the wins 7 VM to access the internet?

From what I understand don't worry, a virus is not getting out of that virtual machine unless you do something stupid and transfer and infected file to the host.

You could maybe setup another vm to act as a firewall to prevent the rogue vm to access anything but your real lan.
