If you download infected files to the VM and then copy those files to the host PC and execute them, YES the host PC gets infected. Without transferring, files No.
I've been searching the web to find out what all can be done with a VM, but am just getting confused. If I install a VM xp on my xp computer, will I be safer using the VM to surf?
Can malware get into my host xp through the VM xp os?
Almost. Some programs don't like to work inside a VM, the graphics speed will be slow and most games will not work, every program that need to direct control the hardware will not work.
Can I run any program that is supported by xp on the xp VM?
Can I find help here if I have a problem with the VM?
