Because WinXP is essential, I've set up a new virtual WinXP PC under Oracle
Virtual Box. I was able to recover much of a destroyed virtual WinXP PC.
Placing blame for failure of Oracle Virtual Box installs is for losers. Life
is for learning.


My wife runs Avira on her XP3. Slows the machine down, but
works fine.
I use my instincts, and do a weekly scan with Kaspersky's
rescue disk from a USB. The only hits I've ever had are stuff I knew
was malware.
Not sure if it would search inside a VM image. You will have
to download known malware, save it in your image, and then see how
Kaspersky handles it.
