I'm running Windows XP SP3 on a Virtual machine (Oracle VM) on a Windows 10 Desktop computer
The Windows 10 Desktop has Avast Free antivirus working ok.
I assumed,maybe inncorrectly, that I would also have to protect the Virtual machine with AV software.
I have installed and repaired Avast Free Antivirus several times but it refuses to run.All I get is the message-
YOU ARE UNPROTECTED
Avast background service is not running
Can anyone throw any light on this.
The only advice I have found so far is to do a repair via control pannel or to uninstall/reinstall which I have done several times to no avail.
