Using Virual PC in Win 7 Pro

I have successfully installed a MS download - Virtual PC and Win XP mode onto a Toshiba Win 7 Pro laptop.  The CPU supports virtualization.  I have installed a legacy software program which seems to function normally on the virual machine.  I use Kaspersky protection software on this laptop and have not noticed any conflicts with the firewall.  Everything seems AOK.  My question:  Does the Kaspersky software protect the virtual machine?  Or is it necessary to install a second copy of the Kaspersky software on the virtual machine?

Production or not, if the machine is exposed to the internet AND your PC via network, you should have antivirus on it.  PERIOD.  Viruses don't know the difference between a production network and a test network.
