    I'm trying to run an app that access the web using XP mode and I get this message and the little red ewarning in the taskbar. I have Norton 360 in Windows 7 installed. Do i need to install a virus checker in XP?

    I get the message in the bottom corner of screen saying your computer might be at risk (remote).Antivirus software might not be installed.

    Technically, yes.

    Anti-Virus installed on the host system will not protect any VM's
    You will need to install anti-virus in each VM. A VM (virtual machine) is in essence, running a separate OS on a separate box, it is a second separate PC within a PC, so they are not the same or really connected other than shareing the hardware through virtualization.

    That should muddy things up pretty good.

    In otherwords,,, think of XP Mode and a completely Separate entity which has no relation what-so-ever to Win7, other than they are sharing the same hardware.
