Hi,
I want to ask if there is a virus/spyware danger from a virtual image. Both systems are Windows.

Thanks

Sure is.

An Imaged Virtual Machine does not prevent you from getting a Virus it just gives you a quick way to re-image back when you get one.

OK,
got it! . So, next question is how you check your image file for virus? Checkig the image file from normal windows will reveal it? or do I have to use a virtualized Antivirus when I run the image?

Thanks so much for your time!
