Avast for Mac and Avast for windows

I am running the system with the Mac OS and wanted to install the Avast Anti Virus protection to get my self protected with the any virus attack. But wanted to know that Does it work with the Virtual Drive also which is running with the Windows XP? Or i have to install any other antivirus for the same. A suggestion may be appreciated. Thanks in advance.

As per my knowledge when installed the Avast or any other anti virus on the Mac system then that will be detect all the file on the system but it will not detect the Virtual Drive file as FileSystem. Just consider the file as the Plain file and will scan according to that only. So it is of no use it will not detect the same with the Virtual XP.

I agree with the above reply as it is true that the file will not detect the Virtual program of the system so if you need to run the antivirus protection with the Virtual Drive also then it is better to install the Avast on the Virtual XP also which will keep the system safe from any malware or virus attack. So install the same with the Virtual Drive.

I am using the Norton Anti Virus for my Mac OS which is running with all the Application properly that i am using. This antivirus is faster then any other anti virus program that i have used before. I am happy with the Norton so i am advising you also to use the Norton with the system of yours. Hope you will like it.
