Looking at Virus Actions

By andrew.vadas ·
So I want to take a look at viruses and their corresponding actions, because why not. I've created a safe location on an old PC that is removed from all networks. On this PC I've installed Linux and will install a VM software like Virtualbox. I will create a VPN to fake a network connection and put Windows 7 on the VM. I then want to find a program that shows all background processes and actions that are running on the Virtual Machine (maybe one that logs these actions as well). I want this program to not live on the VM, but on the Linux OS so if the VM crashes due to an over-zealous virus, I can still see the processes. I don't know if there is a VM software that has an application like this already or if I will have to find a separate one. Any thoughts or opinions?
