Hello guys,

I'd install java on my Win10 PC. To avoid security flaws, I want to install on a virtual machine both java and the other programs I need. The guest OS must be Win10, it mustn't be connected to internet and mustn't have shared folders: I will use USB pen to share files.

My host OS is Win10Pro and I ask you what is the safer solution for me: Hyper-v or Virtualbox?

VirtualBox works well on Windows 10.You just should remember to install Guest Additions and update to the latest version of Guest Additions when Virtual Box updates.
