Just a quick question...if using virtual PC (connectix virtual pc 5.2) on a windows xp system, can the virtual os transfer a virus to the main OS... :unsure:

1.) C:\ hold windows XP :clean:

2.) F: \holds virtual drive w2k :virus:


They are on two different drives, XP has an antivirus program and firewall...Thank you!!

If the virtual W2K PC can see your Windows XP drive, then yes. If it can't, then no. I'm not sure about how VirtualPC for Windows operates since I haven't used it. I know that on my mac version, the visiting PC is placed on a simulated, virtual drive. The drive is actually one file that can dynamically expand as more information is added.

Thank you for the reply!! I have a new question...Is there any way to take the virtual disk image and transfer it to a new HDD as my main OS, I was thinking maybe Nortons Ghost (all options open)?? I have set up the virtual PC how I would like it, and don't want to reinstall to a new drive...But I will if I have to. :( Thanks in advanced!!
