files? I don't know how to say this. In ORACLE VirtualBox, I'm using Windows XP and I'm trying to test a antivirus (by downloading malicious files) but my Norton keeps interfering with the virtual machine. Is there anyway I can fix this?

PS Disabling Norton is a pain in the @$$, and is almost impossible. Is there anything else I can do?
