Create a clean environment with Microsoft Virtual PC

Virtual PC - Josh Hoskins - 1 of 11

Microsoft Virtual PC is available as a free download which can be used to create a clean system, which entails having a new system environment ready for either testing of applications or for general Web surfing or day to day activities. This is done to keep your main system clean of either junk from multiple installs or spyware and viruses.

This is the introductory screen of the new Virtual PC Wizard. You can access this wizard by clicking "New..." from the Virtual PC console or selecting File | New Virtual Machine Wizard.
