@Kolkata 42 degrees.
New Delhi:- 46 degrees Celsius
But right now its raining here....
These degrees is crazy and very unpleasant, so I can imagine that the Monsoon season is very welcome indeed at the moment

Let me add my security settings in 3 Virtual OS.
All are XP sp3 32bit.
1. Spyware Terminator with AV and Fortinet Personal Firewall.
2. TrendMicro Titenium and Iolo Personal Firewall.
3. Kaspersky Internet Security 2010.
Mamutu 2.0 with Paranoid Mode and HitMan Pro
Monsoon is still 2 month away from Delhi !! Its just western disturbance which led a little rainfall today !!
That's amazing !! Me too gonna add 5 Virtual OS in future for testing purpose.
ha ha... why not...
BTW how you manage to install 3 Virtual OS? I mean have you used the same .vdi file for all the OS or you have separately installed each OS?
Separately installed in VMWare Player... You can add as many. But can be run only one at a time. But with VirtualBox you can run them at the same time...
Ohhh...that took a lot of time i guess..Because i always test every security product and other utilities (for review purpose) on an updated windows environment. So installing everything separately will consume a lot of time.
Actually I did not updated windows. Just installed XP sp3.
Do you test them on real systems or on Virtual OS?
If you use Virtual PC, install all updates and then keep a system image and then test the product, next time restore the image.
If you use real system (more reliable), take a system image after updating and before installing other softs and then keep an image after installing your normal day softs. When you need to test, restore the first image and test and after test restore the second image.
Thanks for suggesting me...but i am following all these things religiously from ages ...
Yeh I know about your reviews , But I told because of this because of this,
Okay..Let me clarify a bit more...I was actually talking about Virtual Machines, because i always take a image of a virtual OS by copying the .vdi file of an operating system. I do use Snapshots and all but i always keep an update copy of main OS.
Actually what i want to know is that is it possible to use the same .vdi file for 2nd, 3rd and so on Virtual OS in a single VirtualBOX? What if i keep the same .vdi file in different folders and then use it simultaneously ...
Hope i clarified myself.
Understood. Shouldn't be a problem if you rename them.

Acronis's Virtualization is truly wonderful, backup imaging plus virtualization. I uninstalled Norton, disabled D+ and let my family use this PC for a days with the virtualization on, lo-and-behold a toolbar was installed, along with a nasty Windows Antivirus 2010 rogue. I came back to my PC, exited the virtualization and back to normal I was
