XP Mode revisited

  • I have another PC at home that needs to be upgraded from Vista – Win7 and might have some malware. So I fired up my Virtual Image based version of Windows 7 and then fired up Virtual PC 2007 XP Mode


  • That way, say if someone visits a site that might be infected, I just shutdown the XP session and it’s sandboxed into oblivion..
  • I also recommend Microsoft Security Essentials as an alternative to AVG9, as 9x has become clobber-ware, i.e. all the good things taken out of it
