    I made a virtual machine using VMware Workstation. My plan was to find viruses not detected by Kaspersky. When I go to malware websites, the anti-virus on my own computer (not the virtual one) detects them. o_O

    I want the virtual machine's anti-virus to react.

    Is this normal? How can I prevent it?

    Thanks,

    If you are detecting them on line, yes. They have to go thru the host first.

    Just disable the AVs proxy scanner or use a bridged(direct) connection for your virtual pc. ;)

    At that moment, I was trying ESET Smart Security 3.0. Now I'm testing Kaspersky Internet Security 8.0.0.501 CF 2! :)
