Got a cheap new laptop to play old games with a VM of Windows XP/7, with the host being Windows 11.
Using a WiFi that isn't my own (as I don't plan on connecting to the internet with this laptop) I installed whatever updates were needed, along with Bitdefender and VirtualBox (Networking functionality wasn't included).
My questions are; do you think this is enough to keep the laptop secure and malware free? The only "risky" thing I imagine I'd be doing is sharing files/usb devices with the VM from the host. Would antvirus software be needed in the VM OS?
