Windows 7 Don't forget or neglect VMs

For example, I keep VMs of legacy Windows for client support. IF, for whatever reasons, you are running VMs of Operating Systems remember they, too, require updating... (their) browsers, Adobe, Java, Microsoft Updates, security tool(s) for A-V & A-M, CCleaner, et al; AND the same TLC, too... clean-up, Defrag, et al. VMs must treated like any other computer and be given identical care & attention.

And, yes, VMs of Operating Systems cannot go w/out security, like MSE or something. They, still, need it, same as a physical machine.

a very timely and helpful reminder for someone like me, who just started using vms for the first time (xp guest, w8 host), thanks very much, much appreciated!

You're very welcome. Glad I could be of assistance.
