Virtual machines allow you to run tests locally in your computer or laptop for free. You can test different software, browsers, utilities and more before you decide to run them in your computer or laptop.
Note: Microsoft virtual pc 2007, is no longer supported. So make sure you uninstall this tool if you have one running in your machine.
Run a virtual pc session and once you have finished just revert back to the original starting point or simply save with all the updates or added software. This means that what ever happens during your virtual session will not affect the original operating system, once you revert back to the starting point. No virus can ever damage your base system as you are running a virtual session. This is a good method to implement if you have friends that would like to use your computer or even your own children. Another very good reason to use this method is when you are testing software, programs, tools and utilities that you are not sure how they will perform.
I have Windows 7 Home Premium running and have installed virtual pc 2007 and currently I run Windows 2000 professional and windows XP home. I know Windows 2000 Professional is an old operating system but I loved this system in its good old days. Windows XP Home is still been used around the world and also it’s brother Windows XP Pro. And before I you ask, yes I do have legitimate copies of both Operating systems.
Click on virtual pc 2007 and download the version for your operating system. Install it set it up and give it a try. I am sure you will enjoy it and see the benefits of running a virtual drive or session.
Hint: Remember you have to have an original copy of windows to create a virtual copy, for example Windows 2000, XP, Vista. You should have enough ram to allow for the virtual machine to run well without affecting your current system.
